Kumquat, cute as a button

No bigger than the tip of a thumb, the kumquat is the smallest of the citrus fruit. Eaten whole with the rind, as it is rather stingy on the juice side. Kumquats are often candied, pickled, or cooked into jam or marmalade. It is used in baking and also perfect for a sweet and sour sauce, for duck, poultry, and fish.

Freezes well.
