Kumquats




I was delighted when my Pastor gave me a whole big gigantic bag of kumquats last fall. I was a bit overwhelmed, I wasn't quite sure what to do with them, but I was thrilled! I began searching for recipes, and I made several batches of marmalade and kumquat bread. I was so impressed with myself that I also put up several quarts of kumquat puree in my freezer to use later. I found a recipe for a kumquat cream pie that uses the puree, Cool Whip and heavy cream. I thought that would be WONDERFUL in the hot sticky summer time! But really....I thought my attraction to kumquats was rare..........
UNTIL TODAY!
I went onto the Martha Stewart blog today. It is listed on my page under "blogs I stalk" just FYI. I was so happy when I saw her lengthy blog about, you guessed it...KUMQUATS!!!!
I just can't believe it! I think I stumbled onto a "good thing"! hee hee
