Very Easy


Number of serving: 2
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds

1/2 teaspoon anise seed

1 pint kumquats

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar

1 1/4 cups orange juice

1 cup dried cherries

1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Beautiful, fresh kumquats. Just waiting to be made into a delicious chutney.
  • Prepare the kumquats by giving them a rinse and then slicing them into disks. Remove the tiny seeds with the tip of a knife.
  • Granted, this is a bit tedious, but just take your time and you’ll have it finished before you know it.
  • In a small, dry skillet over medium heat, toast mustard seeds and anise seed. Gently shake the pan back and forth until seeds are aromatic and lightly toasted, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Transfer to a heavy, small saucepan with remaining ingredients – sliced kumquats, sugar, orange juice, dried cherries, ginger, black pepper and cinnamon.
  • Bring to a boil stirring often. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the chutney thickens and the kumquats become translucent, about 20-25 minutes.
  • Transfer to a bowl and let cool before serving. Store in air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Bring to room temperature before serving.
