Kumquat Compote /Jam


















This kumquat compote was made about a month ago.   When I first baked the kumquat almond tea cakes, recipe taken from Wendy , I bought just enough kumquat for making the tea cakes and regretted not buying more and make them into compote so that I can keep them in jars for further use when the almond tea cakes turned out fabulously delicious .  Few days later, I saw them again in Jusco . This time I bought 4 punnets and cooked them into compote.  I would like to thank Wendy for sharing her compote recipe.  The ratio of sugar and water and kumquat she shared was just perfect for my taste bud. Each time I wanted some kumquat jam, I just scoops out a few tablespoon and using a kitchen scissors, cut and mashed them up into jam...of course this is one lazy way of turning them into small amount of jam  ...instead of blitzing them into smooth jam, I prefer to be able to taste the bits of compote in my mouth.   This tasted better than marmalade...mmmm refreshing and fragrant !

















I have another bigger jar in the fridge...enough to last me for another few months :)  You can make ice drinks with this kumquat compote on a hot day.   I am looking forward to more cakes and cookies and biscuits using this kumquat compote.   I never knew it tasted so good until I read it from Wendy's blog and it really opened up my horizon on these fruits. I am already looking forward to the next CNY ! LOL!   I baked some Japanese Tofu Donut and guess what ?  Yea....I ate them with the kumquat compote and it was so yummy good that I have to share with you the Japanese Tofu Donut in my next post.  Stay tuned !  :)



















one punnet cost RM3.80 


















ready for cooking after having the seeds removed


















look how luscious they look in the jar....
I can't wait to use them for my cakes :)
stay tuned for my next post......

  1. You're cruel to tempt me with this now that I can't find any kumquats in the market. Sigh. But then, even when I get my hands on some, I'd eat them up as is before I could even get turn them into this luscious thing :)

  3. Next year don't buy from Jusco, very pricey.
    Tesco's almost the same price but 450gm, 40% extra.
