Cut cumquats into quarters and remove the seeds.

Put the cumquats in one container and just cover with water. Put the seeds in a dish and cover with water.

Next morning, place seeds in a piece of fine netting, tie it securely and put in with the fruit.

Bring to boil and simmer for ½ hour or until fruit skin is tender. Remove the bag of seeds.

To each cup of jam, add 1 cup of sugar and bring to boil again and simmer for twenty minutes; after which time, test for jellying potential.
