Cumquats in syrup

A nice change from the time it takes to make cumquat jam.
Clean cumquats and remove stems. Cover with water and simmer cumquats till tender. Pour off water. Add 1 cup of sugar and half a cup of fresh water for each cup of fruit; add a little squeeze of lemon juice. Simmer till a little syrup sets like a soft jelly when dabbed on a cold saucer. Bottle at once (cleaned and sterlized). Seal.
