Introduction: Kumquat Compote
I harvested many many pounds of kumquats this year from my secret kumquat source and made a whole slew of different types of kumquat preserves: Indian kumquat pickle, Regular kumquat pickles, salt-preserved kumquats, South African-style preserved kumquats, kumquat-szechuan peppercorn caramels, fresh kumquat salsa, and this delicious kumquat compote.
This particular kumquat compote, using Seattle Bon Vivant's simple recipe , is so easy and delicious, I make huge amounts of it most years, and it never lasts long enough. It's good in anything: topping on desserts, mixed with plain yogurt, as a cake or chocolate souffle topping, on bread...If you have access to kumquats, I highly suggest making this recipe! The only time consuming thing is taking out all the seeds (which you wrap into little cheesecloth bundles).
