CSA cooking: Kumquat Vodka

basket inventory: lots of kale and carrots, lettuces, cilantro, rosemary, tangerines, blood oranges, mandarins, limes, lemons, kumquats, broccoli, avos, mac nuts, sprouts

yes more kumquats...but i thought this might be a good one for the adults in the crowd.
NOTE: if you want to make this for a party, you need to start a few weeks in advanced so that you have a well developed flavor.

  • 1 liter/5-6 c. good vodka
  • 2 c sugar
  • 1 pound well washed kumquats
pierce the quats a few times do that they can soak up the booze. dump them into a sterilized glass jar/pickling container and add sugar. add the vodka and close the container well. let it sit for about 2 weeks or until the sugar is dissolved...
i should be doing a follow-up to this recipe in a few weeks!
