Simmered kumquat

Yesterday evening I simmered the kumquat fruits with sugar :)




The result.

Then this morning I put the fruits in small glass jars.


Unfortunately this year the fruits are few and not ripe enough thus the taste is not as good as usual. Still this is one of my annual winter events and in such unusual time doing the “annual” thing means much.

Meanwhile in the garden...


One of the cats licking the frozen surface of water in the water pot. Now we are in the coldest time of year, everyday the water is frozen - just surface, but even on sunny day the ice remains after the noon. Here in Yokohama, we have very mild weather and seldom have snow, thankfully!
