Hi Purplegirl! So sorry your kumquats were sour.....

2007-03-18T13:26:00.000+08:00

Hi Purplegirl! So sorry your kumquats were sour...being new to kumquats myself, I can't shed light on the different varieties. This marmalade may be the answer though because it was very sweet so should balance the sourness perfectly :) Hope it turns out well for you

2007-03-18T00:49:00.000+08:00

i've never seen/eaten kumquats before. i've never seen them here in the southern usa where i've lived most of my life so when i went to san francisco last week, i made sure to find some and i did -- from an organic produce market!

when i got home, i was a tad disappointed that they didn't look the same as toni's did (http://toni.marikit.net/?p=624). instead, mine were the "real" kumquats: sweetish rind, sour inside and resembles calamansi (even the seeds and compartments inside). i'm convinced hers are a different variety.

anyway, i know there's no way i can eat my kumquats just as they are (really, they're as sour as calamansi) so i resolved to just squeeze them all into a bottle to preserve them and use as calamansi (in juice or patis). but then, i remembered reading your post about kumquat marmalade so here i am.

i've yet to find and taste the other varieties like yours and toni's but for now, i'm off to make my kumquat marmalade. your simple recipe is just the answer.

This is really a great post. Every summer, my neighbor would bring me some and I love taking each tiny small bites into the skin, very refreshing and yummy ! :)

Hi Mila! I was wondering about the size versus edibility of skin...I can just imagine snacking on them during a Chinese winter...although I've never been to China, it just sounds so picture-book! :)

2007-02-20T09:28:00.000+08:00

I had my kim kyat in China over a dozen years ago. Love them and am glad I can get them here. They were my favorite winter snack (seasonal in China), wish they could grow a wee bit larger, but the edibility of the skin might suffer.

Hi Angelika! They are extraordinarily cute, aren't they? :) Candied kumquats sound amazing! I can just imagine...

And yes, it is a wonderful feeling to look over your "larder"...but it's also nice to give them away :)

2007-02-19T16:19:00.000+08:00

OH, I am simply in love with kumquats. They are almost too cute to be eaten or cooked away, but marmelade with them must be a great way to use them !

At a Naschmarkt stall they sometimes sell candied kumquats, and Tanna got me some at the little adorable market in Paris - pure citrus heaven !

And I also like to have these lovely jars on my shelf. It's a good feeling to be able to see what we have done ! At least with jams and chutneys etc. you can definitely see it, at least as long as you don't give them away....

2007-02-19T09:47:00.000+08:00

Hi Kristen! It is very appealing...it's cute appearance is what led caught me eye before I even knew what it tasted like (or what it was!) :)

Hi Sandy! Thanks :) I will definitely be eating more of this fruit! It is yummy! :)

Hi Bea! Thank you :) It's the first idea that popped in my head when I tried them :)

Hi Marketman! Thanks! My mom is more of the marmalade person so this sweeter version suited me fine...but you may want to try reducing the sugar a bit if you try it :)

I love kumquats~ you are right a bite of citrus and sweet. I bet that marmalade is yummy.

I've never had a kumquat, but I can see the appeal. So colorful and pretty!

2007-02-16T15:40:00.000+08:00

Hi Foodfreak! Thank you very much :) If it's costly then it should definitely be enjoyed by itself in all it's glory...and with gin is not a bad idea at all! :)

Hi Freya! Thanks! :) It's funny and interesting how we can all taste the same things and have different ideas about it...well, that is the beauty of blogging, now I can enjoy kumquats in so many ways! :)

Hi Oggi! Thanks...enjoyed your pictures! :)

joey, it's in the Dec 12, 2006 post titled Fuyu Persimmons, Kumquats & Key Limes. I think I'll also try the marmalade...and with martini.:)

I'd never have thought of using kumquats like this! Lovely pictures too!

2007-02-15T23:46:00.000+08:00

oh I am so jealous, actually green with envy ;) here it is hard to find kumquat at all, and usually they cost an arm and a leg and then some, much too price to make marmalade or chutneys. (Now I am thinking Gin with kumquat... )

Love your pictures, too, you captured the fruityness and color very finely

2007-02-15T23:21:00.000+08:00

Hi Nens! Kumquats in martinis...now that's genius! I have to try them that way soon :) And it's so nice to have centerpieces and decoration that you can eat, no? You can try my marmalade anytime! :)

Hi Veron! Thank you! I hadn't eaten them until now :)

2007-02-15T19:09:00.000+08:00

nice joey! I've don't think I have eaten kumquat before but your marmalade looks utterly delicious!

2007-02-15T16:51:00.000+08:00

Hayayay I wrote a whole comment, and it went kaput on me. Anyway, I was saying that I LOVE kumquats! I had my first taste of them about 2 years ago when a friend brought it to a garden party in Gin's house. It was chilled and we put it in our martinis instead of olives. After each drink, we would pop them in our mouths like candy.Which I then discovered is the best way to eat them, chilled, whole, and popped into the mouth like candy! :)

At another dinner, we had these washed, and then strewn about the dining table along with green ponkans, and gathered in margarita glasses as edible centerpieces. After dinner, they were almost completely gone! :)

What a great idea to make it into marmalade! It must really be so sweet as it's so sweet on its own already. Id love to try that.
