This tiny winter fruit is so delicious when ripe. I love to watch my kids’ faces as they pop them into their mouths. Initially, there is a burst of tart followed by a mouth watering sweetness as you chew. It took me forever to figure out how it all worked and then I realized today that the rind is sweeter than the juicy flesh. Eight whole kumquats add up to nearly 10 grams of fiber – and they are addictive so it is easy to eat a serving.

On day 40 of this 365 day project, I ate my daily five (including roasted cabbage with our annual corned beef). Did you enjoy yours?

Much love,
