Chinese Salted Kumquat Recipe
This Kumquat recipe is a Chinese sore throat remedy, for the next time you are sick - just add a couple of kumquats to your mug, mash them with a fork and fill with hot water. Swirl in a bit of honey.
- Kumquats (enough to fully smush into the jar)
- Kosher Salt (enough to fill in all the cracks)
In a mason jar, add alternating layers of kumquat and salt until the jar is completely filled and the kumquats are somewhat smushed tightly inside. Cover and refrigerate indefinitely, but at least for 2 weeks.
For the Salted Kumquat Tea
Make tea from the kumquats mixture to help heal a sore throat. In a glass, add 2-3 salted kumquats, some of the salt mixture, hot water and honey until it is drinkable. Choke it down. Feel better.
