Candied Kumquats


This week I’ll have a couple recipes that all go together to make one dish so here we go with the first one, the garnish!

Candied Kumquats

(Adapted from Baking Obsession)

2 cups granulated sugar

2 cups water

1 lb kumquats, sliced and seeded

In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the sliced kumquats, reduce the heat, and simmer the fruits, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 30 minutes.


With a slotted spoon, transfer the candied slices into a lidded bowl. Return the syrup to the high heat and boil until reduced to about 1 ¼ cups. Pour the reduced syrup over the candied kumquats. Cool. Cover and keep refrigerated until needed. Can be kept over a week in the refrigerator.

  1. I'm bad and have not been using my Kumquats. I need to make things out of them. This looks good.
