Recipe Roundup: Kumquats
Kumquats come in a variety of colors, including a variegated yellow and green striped kumquat that’s ready to eat. A Centennial Kumquat (or Orange Kumquat) is the most commonly seen, and is similar to a Nagami kumquat, but rounder, and slightly larger than an olive.
The flesh of the kumquat is sweet and the inside is tart, the opposite of what you would expect with citrus. You eat the whole thing, skin, seeds and all when enjoying a kumquat. Though kumquats are a delight to eat as a snack, they’re also delicious candied and used as a garnish on cupcakes, drinks or on a cheese plate. Check out our collection of sweet and savory kumquat recipes.
