Kumquats are entirely edible when ripe, rind and all (although the seeds should be removed). They may be eaten as is, with seeds removed, cut in half, or sliced thinly and used as a garnish for a meat platter or in salads.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 pound ripe kumquats
- 2 cups white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Wash kumquats and cover with water in a non-aluminum saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Add sugar and cinnamon, return to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and drain.
