This week I’ll have a couple recipes that all go together to make one dish so here we go with the first one, the garnish!
(Adapted from Baking Obsession)
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups water
1 lb kumquats, sliced and seeded
In a large saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the sliced kumquats, reduce the heat, and simmer the fruits, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 30 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, transfer the candied slices into a lidded bowl. Return the syrup to the high heat and boil until reduced to about 1 ¼ cups. Pour the reduced syrup over the candied kumquats. Cool. Cover and keep refrigerated until needed. Can be kept over a week in the refrigerator.
