    Pour in water and cook 10min/100 degrees/speed 2.

Tip

To sterilise jars, wash jars and lids in warm soapy water and dry all, upside down, in an oven at 160 degrees.To seal the lids once jars are full, do up tightly and turn upside down. Once marmalade is cooled, the lids will be sealed until opened.

To test if marmalade is cooked enough to set, put a teaspoon-full on a saucer in the fridge. If it's set within a couple of minutes, the marmalade is ready to pour into sterilised jars. If not quite set, cook marmalade for a little longer.

    Thankyou for sharing and for all the tips I have made this tonight using 400g sugar I found I needed to cook an extra 5 min. I also used lime instead as I didn't have lemons. I removed the pips and put them in a small muslin pouch tied and hung on the inside just submerged under liquid after I added the sugar, so I didn't have seeds mixed in. Found this works well.

    I always take care to read comments below any recipe given.....a fairly good indication as to how well a recipe will turn out. This one did not fail and I am super happy with the results.
    I cooked for an additional 5 minutes than what the recipe said, also cutting the sugar down a third . Looking forward to cumquat season again next year.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Submitted by Marie D on 9. October 2019 - 09:03.

    I would like to point out that the method of inverting the jars to seal the lids - as described in the tips has been discredited - and is potentially unsafe.

    See following article: https://www.healthycanning.com/inversion-canning/

    I am also curious as to how the seeds in the marmalade will taste?

    Submitted by trouncer on 12. June 2018 - 14:38.

    We had a load of cumquats this year, and I have adapted this recipe to TM5 with great success - third batch seems the best and is as follows:
    700 g cumquats. (Ours were about size of last knuckle of middle finger ...) Left seeds in ..
    1.5 lemons/limes, pips removed. First lemon i used had a thick skin and TM5 had trouble - suggest you use lemons with thinner soft skins. I cut lemons into 1/8ths ...
    Added fresh ginger - about same size as 1 to 2 cumquats ..
    15 secs on speed 6 gives a great consistency - no too chunky, just right
    Added 225 g water (filtered).
    11 mins 100 deg speed 2
    Added 325 g sugar. Suggest you stir in a little with spatula to get next step moving easier ..
    23 mins 98 deg speed 2.

    The above is the max you can make IMO with a TM5 and will give you about 4 jars of delicious marmalade ...

  • I have now made this so often

    Submitted by Tesmeg on 16. August 2016 - 18:09.

    I have now made this so often I know it by heart! I find that when using a lime instead of a lemon, the flavour is not as sharp - more delicate. I also use the 500g jam making sugar, as I don't mind using less sugar and having a softer consistency. I also cut the cumquats in half to deseed them a little more - but that's just me.

    Thanks Kate.

  • Never had cumquat jam before,

    Submitted by Bear Bear on 19. June 2016 - 21:09.

    Never had cumquat jam before, so I've got nothing to compare it to, but my neighbour dropped off a bag full, so I had to do something! Didn't feel like slaving over the stove and cutting up 1kg of cumquats, so I was glad I found your recipe! I put sugar down to 400g as suggested by others, and if I do it again I'd try to reduce it again, just a little more. Consistency was great and most of the seeds floated to the top, so they were easy to scoop off before bottling. Thank you tmrc_emoticons.-)

    Submitted by Thermo-Cookie on 13. July 2014 - 14:29.

    Just made this recipe.  For something a little different I blitz'd up a couple of chilli's and a small cube of ginger first before adding the cumquat's.  I also only added 120g of water and then also added 100g of white wine vinegar. I didn't have any lemons so I used a fresh lime off the tree instead.
