We have a beautiful cumquat tree in our front garden that I normally watch fruit and do nothing with. Not this year – we made this delicious cumquat marmalade – a great tangy jam and ready in under 30 minutes. I just need some thick slices of warm bread to spread it on.

CUMQUAT MARMALADE
500g unpeeled cumquats, halved
600g sugar
100g water
20cm square piece cheese cloth

Sterilize jars to hold around 700 ml marmalade.
Place a sieve over the TM Bowl and squeeze the cumquat halves to remove and capture the seeds.
Create a bouquet garni with the seeds in the cheese cloth.
Place cumquat halves in the TM Bowl. Using turbo pulse chop 2-3 times depending on how chunky you like your marmalade.
Add the sugar and bouquet garni. Cook at 100°C on Reverse Speed 1 for 15 minutes.
Add the water and cook at Varoma temp on Reverse Speed 1 for 8 minutes. Ensure the MC is on an angle. Check that the marmalade has begun to set by dropping some marmalade onto a cold plate to see if it sets in under a minute.
Discard the bouquet garni and allow to rest in the TM bowl for 15 minutes before pouring into the sterilised jars.

TM Essentials Cheeseclothes are available here.
