I've been at it again.
No, not more vintage recipes with questionable aesthetic value!
New Seasons Market had the most lovely mandarin kumquats, and I was once again smitten. Sure, I still have kumquat syrup and limequat marmalade in the fridge... but they were so pretty, and well.. now I have three kinds of preserved citrus in the fridge.
This time I used 1/2 pound of thinly sliced mandarinquats simmered in two cups of water, to which I added 2 cups of sugar. This I boiled to a temp of 223 degrees, so it should gel up nicely. I do have a Plan for this particular jar of goodness (no it does not involve a spoon and standing with the fridge door open), so its time in my fridge is limited.
