Well it appears to be kumquat season around here again.┬áMy parents’ kumquat tree has sagging branches from the hundreds of pounds of kumquats just waiting to be picked. I am the one who is always tasked with turning the bounty into delicious kumquat treats (but I also always seem eat so many of them my […]

I often say I wish I had more friends who drink cocktails. When we have people over they tend to be wine or beer drinkers, or like my husband they enjoy scotch, neat. There is nothing wrong with that but I would love to have more opportunities to play around with making fun interesting cocktails. […]

Whenever I walk into a fancy candy shop I am drawn to the display of Pate de Fruit. These glistening fruit jellies look like shining jewels lined up in the display and I always want to buy some. While sometimes they can be disappointingly bland, a well made Pate de Fruit is intensely flavorful, capturing […]

Ok, so this is the last kumquat recipe I am going to post for a while. I know that there has been an overload of kumquat recipes lately but I wanted to make sure to share them while they were still fresh in my mind. This is another spiced kumquat marmalade, this time inspired by […]

One of the fun things about making homemade jams and preserves (besides hearing the satisfying pop of the lids as they seal) is that you can make all kinds of flavors that aren’t available in the stores. While I might occasionally make a straight fruit jam or marmalade if I am overloaded with a particular […]

As I have mentioned before, my parents’ abundantly productive kumquat tree meant that throughout my childhood we periodically had significant numbers of kumquats to use in all kinds of creative ways. My parents have a cookbook called “What to Do With a Kumquat” and we certainly utilized it well. The one thing that we always […]

Post image for Daring Baker’s Challenge: Kumquat Tian

Growing up in California I took the bounty of the backyard for granted. Meyer lemons, heirloom tomatoes, tiny plums by the bushel, and of course kumquats. My parent’s kumquat tree is so prolific that one year we made seven gallons of marmalade and still gave kumquats away to everyone and anyone who would take them.It […]

It started out innocently enough. One year my mom suggested that we make a cooked Sephardic charoset in addition to the chopped apple Ashkenazi one. So we did, and people liked it, and every year after that we had both kinds of charoset at our seder. Two charosets seemed reasonable, especially for big seders, so […]

I know Thanksgiving is tomorrow and most people have probably had their menu planned for a while but I couldn’t resist sharing this pie because I absolutely adore it. The pie is inspired by the fresh cranberry relish my family has been making for years. The relish is made by processing fresh cranberries, raspberries and […]
