Candied Kumquats

Kumquats are beautiful and irresistible when you see them in the store. They are not for eating out of hand though and need a bit of WORK before they can be added to your menu.


  • Prep Time : 5 minutes min
  • Cook Time : 5 minutes min
  • Ready Time : 10 min


12 s


  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3 cups Water
  • 2 pints kumquats, stems removed



  1. Bring the sugar and water to a simmer. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Cool completely.
  2. Place the kumquats in a clean jar with a tight fitting lid. Pour the cooled syrup over the kumquats. The kumquats are buoyant and need to be weighted down. I place a piece of parchment paper over them and weight it down.
  3. Place the kumquats in the refrigerator and in 3 weeks the kumquats will have softened and will be sweet and slightly sour. Store the kumquats in their syrup for 2-3 months.
