Kumquat


A small citrus fruit which is entirely edible including the skin.  The rind is actually sweet and the flesh is tart but not juicy.  Kumquat makes wonderful preserves and can be pickled but also eaten raw in salsads or used as a garnish.  This small fruit is grown in China, Japan and the U.S.

Culinary Quote Of The Day

From James Beard...
