This tiny citrus fruit can be eaten whole - skin and all. They have an incredible and surprising flavour with a sweet skin and sour juice.
When ripe, the fruits are delicious eaten raw. Rinse first.
You can also use kumquats in marmalades or compotes.
If the fruit is still a little hard, poaching in sugar syrup to soften the fruit. These are delicious served with ice cream.
Add chopped kumquats to home-made stuffings for poultry.
