I'm sure it'll be the same for most of you!
What You Need:
1 cup chopped cumquats
1 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup water
Step 1: Syrupy Goodness
Bring the water and sugar to the boil, and simmer it uncovered for a couple of minutes. That's how easy the syrup is.
Step 2: Cumquats
Ok, throw the cumquats into the syrup and simmer them for 10-15 minutes. They will smell really good when they are done. Use a slotted spoon to get them out of the syrup, and put them i a bowl for serving.
But they're not done yet! So don't go poking your fingers in for a bite.
