This miniature citrus fruit can be eaten skin and all and is packed with vitamins A and C as well as potassium. They are incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed in savory and sweet dishes alike as well as cocktails.
Tiny, tart and sweet!
If you've never had a kumquat, then now is your chance: They are in season in the winter and should be available at specialty markets if not your local grocery store. Enjoy their tart flavor by popping them whole in your mouth. Or, slice them up and candy them, make jam, add them to salads, put them in drinks or cook with them. Kumquat's add a wonderful flavor and acidity to everything they touch. Here, slices of kumquat brighten up a simple, nutrient-rich quinoa salad (a super food in its own right).
