My Kumquat Marmalade!

I bought kumquats today and wanted to do something different with them =)

My Kumquat Marmalade!

Ingredients:

2 cups Kumquats sliced, stem end cut off and seeds removed
1 large orange (peeled)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup agave nectar (you can use sugar, but I use agave because it doesn’t raise your blood sugar like sugar does)
Directions:

Add sliced kumquats and orange to food processor. Pulse until it is consistency you like. I like some of the peel still chunky. Add vanilla and agave nectar and pulse a couple more times till it is well combined. You can either cook it on the stove or put it in the microwave. If you microwave it do it for 6 – 8 minutes, stirring every couple minutes. It’ll reduce as it cooks. Remove and let cool. If you cook on the stovetop, cook on medium heat stirring often. It should take 30 to 40 minutes. It’ll still be a little thin, but it thickens as it cools. Let cool then store in sealed container in fridge. It should last 1 – 2 months!

Here is is in the food processor…

Done!
