How can you not love cumquats, those little balls of sour goodness. Hard to find in this part of the world in shops, you have to know the location of a tree or have a good (Italian) neighbour. I was lucky this year, finding 2 trees in public spaces, and as few people know the delights of these golden globes, they were not much in demand. I came home with a basket full. This year I made Cumquats in Gin, and Cumquat Chutney.
