● 500 g kumquats
● 500 g sugar
● 250 g water
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Wash the kumquats and pierce each one with a fork.
In a large pot, bring water to a boil, and boil the kumquats for 5 minutes.
Repeat the same thing 2 more times.
Next put the kumquats in a colander to drain.
Add the sugar and water to the pot, boil for 10 minutes and then add the kumquats.
Boil on medium heat for 15-20 minutes, removing any foam with a spoon and paying attention so it does not boil over.
Remove from the heat and set aside overnight.
The next day, boil again for 10-15 minutes for the syrup to thicken.
Just before turning off the heat, add the lemon juice and stir.
Store in sterilized jars.
