Kumquats in syrup
I cut some kumquats in quarters and scooped out the insides and throw out the ones that didn't seem right. Then sprinkled them with 2 or 3 T of Benedictine.
Made a syrup of 2 parts water, 3 parts sugar, added a green cardamom, a small star-anise and the scooped insides. Simmer for a while until the syrup is nice and tasty. Pass through a sieve, add the syrup back to the pan and add the kumquatquarters. Simmer for 10 minutes, transfer to jar. Reduce the syrup if necessary, then cover the kumquats.
I think I'll have to reduce the syrup some more. The taste is lovely already, although still a bit bitter/tart. Maybe it will get sweeter with time.
