I got a kumquat tree to my garden an d I decided to make my second Kumquat in brandy cook. I had no brandy and money to buy it I spiced with with 99% alcohol I had it my home.
Inspired by the recipee at http://allrecipes.com.au/recipe/13971/brandied-cumquats.aspx
I did it this way:
|This is my kumquat plant with ripe kumquats|
|The tree had 580 gram kunquat fruits
|I picked all the fruits with a fork to allow sugar and fruit liquid to move out and in
|I let the fruits be in boiled water 1 minute to kill fungii spores||No image with this fruit cleaning process.|
|I covered the fruits with water and boiled the fruits with 600 ml sugar|
|The 600 ml sugar I made the firts boil with. I boiled the fruit tender for 30 minutes.|
|After the first 30 min cook, I separated the tender fruits from the liquid.|
|I put the ligquid (it is very tasty) in a bottle to be placed in the refrigerator to be used later as a flavour in sprinkling water.|
|I prepared a syrup with 1 liter water and 1 kg sugar.|
|I covered the cooked fruits with the syrup I made and let the frutis cook for another 40 minutes.|
|I cleaned 4 empty glass containers,
added 2 spoons 99% alcohol in each one and closed the containers.
|The containers with the kunquat in alchol are kept for 2 weeks in room temp.|
