You can see a bit of pear in this jar

This was supposed to be a jam, but it turned out as a marmalade, with that bitter taste that marmalade has!

It is only slightly bitter, and I made it using coconut sugar to give it a caramel taste.

The cumquats I had were about double the size of any I have used before, so the skin was a bit thick, which would explain the slightly bitter taste.

If you are using ordinary sized kumquats, it will turn out as a jam.

Preparation Time: 35 minutes
Cooking Time: About 1 hour
Makes: 4 - 6 jars

Ingredients
1 kilo cumquats
5 cups of water
2 tbsp lemon juice
5 cups coconut sugar (or caster sugar)
1 peeled pear, core removed
1 or 2 passionfruits

Method
Cut the cumquats into quarters. At this stage, I try to take out many of the pips.
Pour the water over them, cover and leave them to soften overnight.

Pour this all into a large saucepan, stir in the lemon juice and the chopped pear, and bring to the boil

Reduce the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Add the sugar and stir until it has dissolved.

Bring to the boil.
Boil on a high heat without stirring for about 20 minutes, or till it reaches setting point.

To test for setting point, put a plate in the fridge or freezer for a short while, put some of the marmalade on the plate. Put it back in the fridge for a few minutes, and then run your finger through it.
If it stays separated, then it is done, if it doesn't, boil for a bit longer.
Add the passionfruit.
Take off and leave for about 5 - 10 minutes. Sterilise your jars in the meantime. I do this by putting a bit of water in each, shaking the water out, and putting them in the microwave for about 1 minutes.
Carefully put the marmalade into the jars and seal immediately.
