Some of the best I'm-not-that-hungry-but-I-want-something-to-eat snacks. Bittersweet, glistening orange cumquats. Sitting there in sugary syrup. Who can't resist them? Ok, they're not for everyone as they are quite bitter and sour but there's something about them I just can't resist.
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

Now to make the syrup to cook the cumquats in. I used 1/2 cup water and 1 cup sugar for my 1 cup of cumquats.
Bring the water and sugar to the boil, and simmer it uncovered for a couple of minutes. That's how easy the syrup is.
 
What a fantastic idea - I bet these are fabulous. :D
