Dehydrated Kumquat Slices

Dehydrated Kumquat Slices for Cocktail Garnish

Kumquats are so delicious to eat fresh, its hard to control myself when they are from a good tree! This recipe is perfect for when you have too many kumquats to eat fresh, or only have a few and want to make an interesting snack or garnish. This recipe is super simple and can be made with any amount of kumquats or citrus you may have on hand.


The skin of kumquats is far less bitter than other citrus fruits, making it more palatable to eat whole. These dehydrated kumquat slices are delicious to snack on because of this reason, but note it will not be the same with other citrus fruit, if you substitute.


To begin, preheat your oven to 200 degrees F. Thinly slice your quats and arrange onto an oven safe cookie sheet. Once the oven is preheated, place the slices in the oven for a total of 2 hours, flipping the kumquats over halfway through cooking. Allow to cool on the sheets for 10 minutes before using or storing. Once completely cooled, the slices can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.


If you prefer using a food dehydrator, arrange slices onto trays. Set your machine to either 160 degrees F or "dried fruit" setting. Dehydrate for about 3 hours, checking throughout.


You can make different and fun variations for these with sugar, salt, or seasonings like tajin!


Note: If using a citrus other than kumquats, make sure to adjust your cooking time for longer (if larger fruit like lime or lemon). Adjust cooking time for longer if your cuts are thicker than than 1/4 inch.
