Cumquats are entirely edible when ripe, rind and all. This is a delicious compote that makes a special addition to pancakes, french toast, trifles, or even topped on ice cream.
Something else. This was a great recipe. I sliced the cumquats and added two teaspoons of cherry brandy. After draining it, I used the 'juice' to prepare cranberry sauce. - 29 Sep 2008
I added extra cup of sugar to the syrup, boiled it up for 15 mins and got cumquat jelly. - 04 May 2013
This made a great side dish. I also saved the syrup I poured off and it makes a nice drink in sparkling water. If you like things very sweet you will want to add more sugar. - 29 Sep 2008
