Kumquats, how to eat?

I have access to fresh kumquats. What do you do with them? They look like little oranges to me, but if I have to peel the little things...hmm.

Thanks, Eric, Austin Tx

No need to peel. Actually the peel is the best part IMO. Just wash them and pop them into your mouth.

I think they are better cooked than raw. Poach in a sugar syrup or wine or bottle in alcohol.
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

I like to cut mine in hald and boil in syrup for three or four minutes then add chopped apple. I cook for about 10 minutes until the syrup is reduced and the apples are tender then finish it with a splash of vanilla. YUM.

It's great by itself, as a tart filling, or over (vanilla or orange) ice cream.
