    Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

    Thank you for the recipe conversion Thermo-envy.  I made the goodfood version last cumquat season and was keen to make it again.  You have omitted the 3 cloves in original recipe but I included them as I really liked the flavour.  I did halve the sugar quantity trying to reduce sugar intake in our family.  It was a bit tart so I'll probably use 200g next time.  I thought speed 5 on my TM31 was way too fast even on reverse so I kept it on speed 1.  With family and friends having cumquat trees this will be a regular in our household.  Great with meats especially pork and a perfect accompaniment to a cheese platter.
