Kumquat Curd

Makes 500g Prep Time 12 hours   Cook Time 8 minutes   Rated:


My friend Mignon who is highly creative (check our her beautiful quilts HERE) has recently had a tree change to the Great Southern and is running a wonderful airbnb that you should definitely check out when headed south. ANYHOO, we were delighted to stay there recently in a little pre-Christmas getaway and some kumquats were on offer and this in fact is basically Mignon's recipe. I just took the pic and wrote it up!

I love the simplicity of this method. Initially when Mignon mentioned it, I could only imagine juicing 100 little wee oranges and my eyes glazed over, but this is so easy and worked like a charm. So get picking, if you are lucky enough to have kumquats at your disposal.

I also just made some little tartlets, see the video for Vanilla Bean Pastry attached. (Right at the end!)

Happy Kumquatting!

To make the kumquat juice, prepare the night before by placing the kumquats into the Thermomix bowl and chopping 6 sec/speed 6. Leave in the bowl overnight either in the fridge or on the kitchen bench.


In the morning, strain the kumquats through a fine nut milk bag, discarding the solids. Rinse out the Thermomix bowl and return 220g of the juice to the bowl. Store any remainder in the fridge and use in cocktails, drinks, cordials etc.


Add remaining ingredients to the juice in the Thermomix bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 7.


Cook 10 min/80°C/speed 4.


Cook 2 min/90°C/speed 5.


Store in sterilised airtight jar or container in the fridge until use.
