About this recipe: Kumquats are entirely edible when ripe, rind and all. This is a delicious compote that makes a special addition to crepes, French toast, trifles, or even topped on ice cream.

This made a great side dish. I also saved the syrup I poured off and it makes a nice drink in sparkling water. If you like things very sweet you will want to add more sugar. - 15 Sep 2008

Something else. This was a great recipe. I sliced the kumquats and added two teaspoons of cherry brandy. After draining it, I used the 'juice' to prepare cranberry sauce. - 15 Sep 2008

I prefer plain, fresh kumquats to these cooked ones, but the syrup they were cooked in was pretty good. - 15 Sep 2008
