A Bowl of Sunshine


Not exactly a bowl of cherries, here in California in the middle of February you can walk out to a tree and pick a bowl of sunshine. These amazing (and giant) kumquats are off a tree in the orchard by the Long Beach Community Gardens. I have a plot there that is my little 20'x4o' rectangle of paradise. These beauties are sitting in a white bowl in my kitchen and make me smile every time I look at them.... delicious.

orders keeping me from the shibori knitting project at the moment...a good thing. it will be there when i get to it-can't wait to explore the idea...

Okay, I just picked these up too!! I am wondering what you do with them? Do you slice them up and eat them with the rind...do you candy them and use them as a saucy garnish for some amazing citrus sautee????

The kids were just biting in and sucking on...
