In this article, we will guide you through the process of making a mouthwatering Blood Orange & Kumquat Marmalade. Get ready to explore the flavors of these vibrant citrus fruits and create a homemade marmalade that will impress your taste buds and your friends.


Before diving into the preparation, you'll need to gather all the necessary ingredients. Here's what you'll need:

  • 3 blood oranges
  • 10 kumquats
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • Water


Preparing the Blood Orange & Kumquat Marmalade requires a few steps, but with our detailed instructions, you'll find it a breeze.

Cutting the Citrus Fruits

Start by washing the blood oranges, kumquats, and lemon thoroughly under cold water. Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the blood oranges and the lemon into thin circular slices. Make sure to remove any seeds you encounter. For the kumquats, cut them into thin slices as well, but this time, make sure to remove the seeds beforehand.

Cooking the Fruit

Once all the fruits are sliced and ready, place them in a large saucepan. Add enough water to cover the fruits and bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Let it simmer for approximately 40 minutes or until the citrus peels are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Adding the Sweetness

Now it's time to enhance the flavors by adding the sweetness of the marmalade. Add the granulated sugar to the pan and stir gently until it dissolves completely. Allow the mixture to simmer on low heat for another 20-30 minutes, or until it thickens to your desired consistency. Remember to keep stirring occasionally to prevent the marmalade from burning.

Sealing and Storing

Once the marmalade reaches your desired consistency, remove the saucepan from the heat. Let it cool for a few minutes before transferring the marmalade into sterilized glass jars. Seal the jars tightly and allow them to cool completely before storing them in a cool, dark place. The Blood Orange & Kumquat Marmalade can be stored for up to six months, but we're confident it won't last that long!
