A note about serious food allergies

Kumquats are small citrus fruits whose name translates to "golden tangerine" in Cantonese. The more-tart-than-sweet fruit is used in myriad ways, including jams and marmalades, or eaten whole (peel and all). We combine the minced fruit with butter for a fresh, citrusy topping to a roasted pork chop. This is a unique dish that's rich in flavor but low in calories. Sounds like a winner to us!
