I left it out - safe to eat?

I made marmalade (kumquat.) This is a fast-jam recipe that you store in a regular container in the fridge - not canning/preserving where you boil the containers etc. The recipe says to let it cool then transfer to smaller containers, and that it will keep for 2 mos in the fridge or 6 mos in the freezer.

I left it to cool and forget it overnight so it sat out for about 11 hrs. Is it okay now to refrigerate/freeze as normal? Or do I need to toss it?

The only ingredients are kumquats & sugar.
