Kumquat fruit and vegetables for health.

Diminutive citrus fruits that are eaten skin and all, kumquats are as decorative as they are tasty. The egg shaped orange fruits are about 1 1/2" long, and often come with the shiny dark-green leaves attached. Kumquat are an excellent source of vitamin C.

Buying
Choose plump, shiny, fully-orange fruits.

Preparation
Wash kumquats very well before serving, since the skin as well as the pulp is eaten. To mingle the flavours of the sweet rind and tart flesh, squeeze the kumquats between your fingers before biting into the fruit. Add kumquat slices to fruit salads and use the whole or sliced fruit as an edible garnish. Try kumquats in cooked dishes that call for oranges.
