Sweet and Tart Mandarinquat Marmalade

Mandarinquats are exactly what they sound like: a combination of mandarins and kumquats. They’re a small hybrid fruit that has the sweetness of a mandarin and the sour notes of a kumquat—and just like a kumquat, they can be eaten whole, skin and all. 

And while we love a grab-and-go snack, we think any fruit with a flavor profile this complex is just begging to be made into a marmalade. Follow along with this low-ingredient, easy recipe to make your own, we recommend serving it up on your next charcuterie board, on a simple slice of sourdough toast, or in your next morning parfait

How to prepare mandarinquat marmalade:

  1. Add sliced mandarinquats to a medium saucepan on medium heat.
  2. Add sugar, water, and hot honey or cayenne (optional) and cook for 15 minutes, stirring often. (Not a fan of hot honey? Use the regular sweet stuff instead.)
