while we were in florida we took advantage of taking in lots of fresh citrus. we spent one afternoon at the tupelo honey homestead which had a kumquat tree that was bursting at the seams with ripe fruit. they let us go wild and pick a big bag.
i know that eating kumquats raw can be pretty tart but these were so sweet! i couldn't wait to get home and make something delicious....and we ate quite a few straight from the tree!
i will be sharing a yummy kumquat recipe next week... in the meantime check out this yummy candied kumquats recipe!
