Kumquat Jam

Updated: Mar 30

  • Kumquat is a special citrus fruit that we can enjoy and consume on winter days. It looks small, but the contrast between the sour pulp and the sweet, aromatic rind adds to the flavor. That this is the only fruit among citrus fruits whose peel is consumed, you heard correctly, it is quite rich in nutritional properties and fiber. It is often served on the table before holidays, sumptuous lunches and dinners, and it is more difficult to taste it like jam. Its balanced taste fits perfectly in the processing of jam, and in this way you can save it in the coming months as a product for spreading, which gives healthy energy and a natural homemade snack.
