Kumquat Marmalade

So..last night I made some yummy "Kumquat Marmalade"

I took about 4 lbs of fresh sliced, de-seeded kumquats/with the stem end sliced off.
Added about 1 cup sugar per 1 lb. of fruit.Added juice of 1 fresh lemon.

Let it all cook down until the fruit starts having a transparent look on some of the peeling, and the sugary syrup starts to thicken.

I then put the hot mixture into my blender and lightly chopped it.
Then back into the pot to cook about 8 minutes more. Then into clean hot jars.
Yummy! So good on toast.
(***you can actually do the same thing with navel oranges or other oranges....slice the fruit thin and include the juice of a need to use pectin..the fruit is tart enough)
