cumquat liqueur

leave a comment »

The cumquat (or kumquat) is an small orange-like fruit related to the citrus family. It has an edible rind and acid pulp and is often used to make excellent bitter marmalade. This recipe makes a clean-tasting and fragrant liqueur.


Simply wash and weigh your cumquats. Place them in a clean jar with an equal amount of white sugar. Cover with a good dry gin and leave to steep for 3 months. You will find the cumquats themselves quite strong in flavour but worth trying with some ice cream.
