How to make homemade Calamondin Marmalade

If you are growing your own food at home you might just be growing Calamindon or other small citrus such as Kumquats. These little citrus fruits make the most delicious marmalade jams for the home kitchen. Better yet, they are free from all things synthetic or mass produced. In addition to that, any by product goes straight into the compost pile to put nutrients back into the soil 

Making homemade Calamondin Marmalade is a pretty straight forward process. This recipe does call for some effort when it comes to preparing the little citrus fruit, but otherwise it is really simple. 

To further extend the options of what you can make, be sure to head over to my sustainable living recipes and let you taste buds explore new horizons.
