so i used a tom colicchio recipe for marmalade. obviously i tweeked it.
i used about 40 kumquats sliced into thirds and seeds removed
i boiled 1/2 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water a couple of chopped garlic cloves 1 teaspoon crushed peppercorns and 1 branch of chopped rosemary. once everything was melted i simmered it until the kumquats were translucent. his recipe didnt have garlic or salt in it. it was delicious. so very very very delicious.
so i made a pork roast because kim brought me kumquats from her tree on the fourth of july.
i seared it on all sides and sat it on red onions and whole kumquats. at the end of cooking like the last 30 minutes i poured my kumquat concoction on it and basted it with the pan juices. it made excellent sandwiches on homemade bread. i think i need to make this again. anyone want to come over?
