Not really a recipe, but wow! These things rock! I'd never heard of them until today when I saw some at the store and bought some.

Recipe:

Buy kumquats
Eat them, peel and everything.

They're the size of large grapes and citrus fruits. They look like orange lemons. You eat the peel though which you wouldn't do on a lemon - you could but really shouldn't as lemon peels taste bad.

Good picture. Remember though - they're only about an inch long.

Yeah it is. An inch is being generous - they're like the size of the biggest grapes you've ever seen. An inch tops!

Another recipe:
Slice them in half and dip the rind part in sugar to make them less sour.

OR for you drunks...
Make a margarita replacing lime juice with kumquat juice. I don't care for margaritas but made one today for the hell of it. It was okay.

That website says they're in season from mid-November to mid-March. So they're out of season I guess?

You sure do eat it! Good luck peeling the things, they're tiny as Censored The peel doesn't taste like an orange/lemon/lime/grapefruit peel - they're sweeter.

I guess although I've never eaten the latter. The peels are the same style as citrus fruits but they aren't bitter-tasting like on an orange, lemon, lime, etc.

They're cheap, too. I forget what they cost but it comes out to like one-third of what limes cost...at least in CA.

For all you chefs out there.

I got bored last time I was home so I made a lemon meringue pie from scratch (crust and all) and got to thinking - while lemons are great kumquats are better. Would a kumquat meringue pie be good?

Also, if you don't like people eating your pies, make the filling a weird color. I made the lemon meringue pie filling purple (red + blue food coloring) and the idiots at my house thought it was a plum pie and wouldn't eat it :haha: That wasn't my intention but I thought it was funny.


EDIT: I'm not crazy. A quick yahoo! search of "kumquat meringue pie" and there's recipes galore! I don't need a recipe as I'll just substitute lemon juice for kumquat juice, but that's great news.

According to wikipedia they're in season from late-fall to mid-winter.

You eat the seeds on kumquats because you're supposed to eat them whole. Just pick off the stem (if it's there) and pop the whole thing in your mouth. Pucker up as they're sour as Censored

Bought a kumquat tree today. Unlike the pomegranate tree we bought last fall, this had fruit on it (about 15 kumquats).

Of the kumquats most are green and small. One was orange and edible (I ate it, it tasted like it should). Another is very close to ready but I'll let it wait a few days.


The tree is pretty tiny so it isn't expected to produce much yet.
