1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
1. Prepare the kumquats by slicing them into quarters creating rings. Flick away any visible seeds.
2. In a small sauce pan add the sugar and water. Turn heat on to medium and let the sugar dissolve. Increase to a boil.
3. Add the kumquats and return to a boil.
4. Reduce to a medium simmer for 45 minutes. You want the kumquats to be translucent and the liquid to be like syrup.
5. Cool to room temperature. Cover and chill. Candied kumquats will last 2 weeks.
