The candied kumquat can keep up to 2 weeks. Enjoy using it on toast or toppings for cakes. I am going to use it on my favorite Italian dessert. I love to make panna cotta because it is so good and easy to make. I will garnish it with this beautiful candy. By the way, I am entering this dessert for the lovely blog Cuocicucidici's HART-to-HART-MY CONTEST. I hope they like it as much as I like to eat it. I made the panna cotta with 1 cup of whole milk and 1/2 cup of heavy cream boiled with 2 tbsp of agar agar flakes, 2 tbsp of sugar and some drops of vanilla extract. Put into a heart shaped pan and cooled.
This delicious but pale panna cotta will turn to exquisite and bright gold with the candied kumquat.
