Number of Servings: 46


    4 oranges or 1 cup of unsweetened orange juice
    3 quarts whole loquats
    2 cups whole kumquats
    4 cups granulated sugar
    1 1.75 oz pkg pectin


Prepare jars and lids in one large stock or canning pot and one sauce pan. Set up for canning with jar lifter, magnet wand and jar Funnel.
Prepare 1 cup orange juice and place it in a large bowl.
Prepare kumquats by slicing in half and removing seeds.
Set aside.
Prepare 1/2 loquats by blanching in simmering water for two minutes. Then rinse in cold water.
Remove skin, large seeds, and white membranes on the inside. Place in bowl with orange juice to keep them from turning brown and stir occationally. Repeat this process for the second half of fruit.
Drain orange juice from fruit into pot and then glass.
(I drink it).
Place prepared loquat into food processor and pulse into small bits. Then add prepared kumquats and pulse again. (The marmelade should have small pieces of fruit.)
Pour chopped fruit into large pot and add sugar.
Stir simmering pot with wooden spoon until mixture has reduced to about a thick gravy consistency (about 80 minutes).
Remove 2 ladle fulls of mixture into medium size bowl and whisk pectin into it. Then slowly add pectin to the rest of the marmelade back into the large pot. Simmer on low boil for one minute.
While still hot pour into steriled jars and seal with sterilized lids and rings. Place into extra large pot with water at least 2 inches above lids and water process for at least 20 minutes (process for 30 minutes just to be sure). Remove from water with jar lifter and let rest on counter until next day. You should hear them each "pop" as they cool.
Label with name and date of preparation the next day
Good for one year on shelf. Once opened, keep in refrigerator.
