Kumquats may look like tiny elongated oranges, but eating them is unlike any citrus you’ve met before. The paper-thin skin is where all the sweetness lies; the flesh within is bursting with sharp juice. Eat them raw, skins and all (there is virtually no bitter pith) for a mouthwatering sour-sweet snack, or cook with meats like duck and lamb – their tartness will cut through the richness perfectly.

How to store kumquats

Kumquats can be kept in a cool room or the fridge for at least a week.

How to cook kumquats

All parts of a kumquat are edible raw, but remove the seeds if you find them too bitter. Create a sharp sauce to pair with richly flavoured meats such as lamb or duck – or, for dessert, cook down with sugar and spices to make a kumquat compote (try saying that three times fast!).

Kumquats variety

These are oval-shaped Nagami kumquats – the most commonly grown variety.

Enrique and Juan work with ProNatura: a French company that coordinates production and provides support for hundreds of small-scale, organic, Fairtrade farmers in countries all over the world. We’re fans.
