Yep.... you eat as many as you can. But then you still have TONS left over... whatcha gonna do?Make Kumquat wine!! (remember homemade prison wine 101?) <---click to read about it.
1.) Gather your wine makin stuff.
For citrus or in this case kumquats this means.. wash em... then cut them in half.
Make sure your container is clean & disinfected. I do this by washing it in hot water or the dishwasher.. then adding 2 tablespoons of bleach in it then filling it with water and dumping it out.
2.) dump 6 cups of sugar into your clean container.
3.) add your gallon of distilled water.
4.) stir well
6.) give it another stir.
Let your little helper clean the spoon.
Wrap your container with plastic wrap. You want to be able to swirl or stir your mixture once a day for 30 days... During this time it will fizz, you want the air to be able to escape but you also want to keep fruit flies and such out. Those pesky fruit flies can send your batch of wine south fast!
Set your container in a cool dark place (or be like me and just leave it on your kitchen counter) and let it brew for 30 days. You want to stir it at least once a day (or just swirl it so the fruit mixes around a little bit)
