    This kumquat marmalade is the perfect pairing to change up your early morning toast routine. The unique taste of the marmalade offers the perfect balance of tanginess and sweetness, which also works great for tea time. Unlike most jams, marmalades are defined by their use of the fruit peel in the creation process. Most European marmalades use Spanish oranges; this kumquat recipe can be considered an eastern variation, as the kumquat fruit grows naturally in the East.

    Health Benefits

    When we think of a marmalade, we tend to not think of possible health benefits; after all marmalades are typically full of sugar. If we ignore the sugar content of marmalade and instead focus on the fruit that gives it flavor, we can see some actual health benefits. This marmalade utilizes kumquats, a spectacular fruit that can help the body to regulate digestion, improve skin, dental, hair, eye health, and boost the immune system.
