1. My dosage is about 500g of kumquat, 40g of soft sugar, 100g of ice sugar and 40g of honey. You can adjust the sweetness according to your preferences.
(Mianbai Sugar can be replaced by sugar)
2. Because there is no preservative added, it needs to be sealed and refrigerated, and it is best to eat it in 2 weeks.
3. In fact, I used to cut the oranges in half to make sugar. This time, I made a special effort to scratch the flower knife and then press it flat.
The fact tells me that this approach has little merit except complexity. Therefore, it is suggested that if you do it yourself, step 2 should be changed directly to “cut the orange in half and remove the orange seeds”
