Easy Southern Cooking/ Stewed Kumquats and Prunes
Stewed Kumquats and Prunes
This recipe is from the 1930's. It was probably popular in the more southern regions where Kumquats were plentiful and served as a breakfast dish or a side dish.
6 kumquats, sliced thin
Wash 1 cup of prunes and soak them in cold water over night. Cook slowly in the water in which they were soaked until soft. Add half of the sugar and cook 5 minutes longer. Season with orange juice. Drain and pit the prunes. Add kumquats to the prune juice. Let simmer few minutes; add remaining sugar. Cook slowly until kumquats are tender, then add the prunes and serve.
