This was my first attempt at making a cumquat chutney. I was fortunate enough to receive a huge bag of these little delicacies from a friend. It was suggested that I make jam, but I wanted something that is neither too sweet nor very sour. Hence the idea of cumquat chutney! These make a great gift in a decorative jar.



Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: Approximately 2 cups

Ingredients
350 gram cumquat
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dried currants
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon chilli powder (optional)
1 teaspoon roasted ground cumin seeds



Method

Wash and quarter cumquat lengthwise. Take out all the seeds.
Combine all ingredients in a heavy medium saucepan.
Boil the mixture until sugar dissolves and cumquat skin is tender.
The sauce will appear thick now.
Let it cool and then transfer them to airtight containers.
Store in refrigerator.
