    I make calamondin marmalade all the time. My friends are always asking for a jar or two when I get a large crop. Make it, you'll love it. I can't make enough to suit my family or friends.

    Calamundin trees are like tiny oranges, they are very decorative, and easy to maintain in tropical weather.I live in an apartment and have two small trees in my balcony. I just never know what to do with the fruit once its ripe. I'm going to attempt the marmalade recipe with the calamundin from my tree.

    When my Grandma & Grandpa were still alive, they lived in Florida, and had kumquats and "lowquats"...I wonder if these were Calomondin? I bet they were!

    I think we have this fruit over here, going by your description but we call it calamansi and we use it while it's still green. Never thought of using it this way. Fantastic idea, I think I really will do this and give mum a surprise. She'll think I'm nuts lol turning her beloved calamansi into chili spiked marmalade. Hah! Can't wait to see the look on her face *snicker*

    Information on Calomondin
    Very useful Makes excellant marmalade,jelly, hair conditioner ,used with fish,meat,poultry ,use in ice cubes, very ornamental ,cold tolerant, very popular over Chinese New Year,marinade pork ,chicken and fish, squeeze juice add hot water for Laxative.
    Now, I don't know about the laxative part but they look like kumquats but rounder instead of oval. The fruit is small and a pain to juice.
    We had the orange rind variety in our backyard til we took it out to put in the pool. They are sour little suckers. Quite the essence of citrus and they'd make sour patch candy taste sweet. It is good as a marmalade. There were some of them in the Keys when Grandma Roberts lived there and she loved the marmalade. She was the queen of citrus recipes.
