    evelyn/athens's Note:

    I recently came into a nice batch of kumquats and made this recipe. Lovely served as a 'spoon-sweet' (Greek-style, on a tiny plate, just 2 of the fruit and a glass of ice water to wash down the sweetness), or chopped up and served over premium (or homemade) vanilla icecream.

      A friend of my somehow came up with a quantity of kumquats for me to use here, &, cutting the recipe in half & was able to complete it! This is a great recipe, & THESE PRESERVES ARE SO TASTY & a new experience for me when served over some frozen vanilla yogurt! I look forward to using this recipe next year when I'm able to get more of this fruit! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Bargain Basement cooking game]
