Kumquat Jam (Chinese tangerine)

2 comments

Someone asked me the recipe for this jam and I share it with you with pleasure.

For those who don’t know it, Kumquat (or “Chinese Tangerine”) is a fruit tree with thick branches and small spines. Its fruits are the ones you see in the photo: the particularity of this fruit is that you eat everything of it, even the skin. Its flavour is a mix of bitter, sweet and sour! This is what it looks like inside:

The tree we have in the garden is quite old (I’m 27 years old, and I’ve always seen it there) and for a long time we ate mandarins by themselves… Then one day, reading a magazine, my father found a recipe for a delicious jam! Here it is:

Ingredients:
1 kilo of Kumquat
1 kilo of sugar
1 lemon
water

Method:
Bring the water to a boil, then add tangerines and lemon and simmer for 15-20 minutes; then drain with a colander and leave them for 24 hours in cold water.
The following day, remove from the water and cut them into thin slices (including lemon), removing all the seeds. Once you’ve done this, boil them again in 300 gr of water, in which you’ve poured 1 kilo of sugar.¬† Cooking time is approximately 40-45 minutes. Once done, blend it all with the hand blender and pour the jam, still hot, into the jars, previously sterilized. Leave the jars upside down, until the jam as cooled.
The method is a bit long, but its’s easy, and the result is excellent! Recipe guaranteed, tried more than once!

    I love “peculiar” jams, and this is one of them! It’s not easy to find these Chinese tangerines, at least here, bit sometimes I saw them. Thanks for sharing, excellent idea
