Kumquat recipes
I bought some kumquats. I don't like them. The flavor inside is OK - it's just a teeny orange, right? - but I don't like the overall eating experience. Edible rind? No thanks.

Does anyone have any good kumquat recipes? Maybe cooking the rind will make me like it. I Googled it but found none on my own.

I love kumquats. They are more about the sweet edible rind than the inside. They're not at all like oranges. They're tart, zippy, and very fragrant. You can candy them. It's a bit annoying to seed them, but then only if you're dealing with like 8 quarts!
There is a kumquat pecan pie from Tartine:
Lottie + Doof Pecan Maple Pie with Kumquats and Bourbon (the party continues)

Kumquat financiers are also great:
Cannelle et Vanille: Candied Kumquat and Pistachio Financiers
Cannelle et Vanille: Baking with Kumquats: a Pistachio Pavlova, Chocolate Financiers and a Pot of Jam
(includes directions for candying them)
