Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard - Chocolate Dipped Kumquat



Simmer kumquat in boiling light sugar syrup for 2-3 minutes.
Light syrup:  2 cups water, 1 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp rum, pinch of salt.
You might want to use simple/heavy syrup if you prefer sweeter taste.


Drain and spread kumquat onto parchment lined cookie sheet, dry in 170F oven or dehydrator for about 2-3 hours until the kumquat is slightly firmed and can be lifted easily.  
Dip kumquat into melted chocolate (I use semi-sweet chocolate) and let it dry a bit before serving.

  2. Yum, those look so good! I've been buying kumquats at the farmer's market lately, but I simply eat them out of hand.

    kitsapFG,
    Thank you, I've been served these little morsels before, it was addicting and I couldn't resist to make some whenever there's fresh kumquats around.
