    This is a recipe from chef Laura Calder of Food Newtorks French Food at Home. Very rich and fruit filled. I served it over a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I also used brandy instead of cognac ( much cheaper) Next time I make this I will take the seeds out of the kumquats Taste similar to a Fig Newton cookie. Times are approximate and includes the mascerating time

      Made this recipe with apricot brandy rather than the cognac, but another time I'd like to try it with Triple Sec (for the orange flavor)! I don't usually do very much cooking with kumquats, although I like eating them plain, AND they're great in this compote, for sure! A nice keeper! Thanks for sharing it!
