Kumquats

Once kumquats are turned into a jam or a sauce, they go exceptionally well with vanilla ice cream or as a filling in vanilla cake. The flavor comes from the essential oils in the rind, and its very healthy I recommend you pop two in your mouth after breakfast each morning. It also goes really well with gin, although perhaps not straight after breakfast!

Sounds interesting, i hope mine will send me a crop next year. Mine is a seedling now 4 years growing, large tree that had some flowers this spring but fell of.

 Sounds good. I just eat my Meiwa out of hand, but the jam/sauce for ice cream sounds good; like an orange swirl or orange "Julius " drink. Maybe put kumquat in a smoothie or milkshake!

I've got a friend who makes an excellent kumquat marmalade.  I haven't tried it with vanilla ice cream but it should be great.

Kumquat marmalade works great as a glaze for salmon or pork
