You can preserve cumquats in sugar and brandy- and they will last for years, are very nice but very sweet. As it is a long time since this was done, from memory: 1.wash cumquat to clean off any deleterious material 2.remove stem 3.place cumquats in jar,after each layer, fill voids with sugar 4.repeat procedure until you fill the jar. 5.add enough brandy until all fruit is covered 6.seal the jar and wait 3-6 months I can't vouch for the accuracy of the measurements.
I should imagine you could also preserve cumquats in a similar way to preserving lemons, but this is conjecture.
