Total Local - Kumquats

A picture named M2

Last weekend I went to the annual Kumquat Festival in nearby Dade City, my plan was to be inspired by local products and make something still with a Scandinavian touch. So, I found, round, sweet marumi kumquats, I think I actually grabbed the last bag of this little "orange berries" grown a few miles from our home. To my delight I also found wooden spoons made from southern cherry by a fifth generation wood worker in Oxford not far from us, at that point I hade made up my mind, I planned to make make raw stirred kumquats, the same way we make raw stirred lingonberries in Sweden, key to this is, as I have always been told is to use a wooden spoon. 2.5 cups of pitted and sliced mauri kumquats, 1 cup of Florida demerara sugar, 10 mint leaves, put in a bowl and stir with a wooden spoon until the sugar is completely dissolved and fluid. Store in fridge and serve with pork or lamb dishes and try it with spicy meatballs.
