Those cute little orange fruits you've been seeing are kumquats. What to do with them? Here's a few sweet to savory kumquat recipes. Oh, and a cocktail too.
Recipe type: Condiment
Cuisine: Moroccan
Serves: 1
  • Kosher Salt
  • Cinnamon Stick (broken up)
  • Fresh Ginger (peeled and sliced into small pieces)
  • Kumquats (any green stems removed)
  • Lemon Juice
  1. Pour a tablespoon of kosher salt into a clean, sterilized jar.
  2. Slice an X in the bottom of the kumquats that goes ¾ of length of the fruit.
  3. Slightly open the kumquat and pour as much salt into the open fruit as you can.
  4. Close the fruit and pack into the jar.
  5. Layer in ginger and cinnamon stick.
  6. Continue doing this with all the ingredients until the jar is full.
  7. Top off jar with lemon juice.
  8. Put the lid onto the jar and place into a cool dark place for 2 weeks.
  9. Use as you would preserved lemons.
I used a ½ pint jar to make mine. You can use whatever jar size you like. The quantities of ingredients you'll need depend on how large your container is.
