Candied Kumquats


I developed this recipe as a garnish for plated desserts in the restaurant where I was the pastry chef, especially for Creamy Pumpkin Pie.   It consists simply of sliced fresh kumquats simmered in a sugar syrup until tender crisp. But it's just as good for home desserts or as a topping for vanilla ice cream. Candied Kumquats are so pretty and are also an easy to make treat.
