Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • About 18 kumquats equal 1 cup peels. Peel kumquats by making four equal vertical slices from the top to the bottom of each kumquat. Peel each section.
  • If you wish to dip the peels in chocolate, melt 6 to 8 ounces sweet chocolate in a saucepan over low heat. Grab with tongs or freshly washed hands and dip in chocolate, covering each side. Lay on wax paper. Remove saucepan from heat every three minutes to prevent burning.
