kumquats

Kumquat season is here.

I love them and eat them like candy (just pop them whole into my mouth and crunch -- if I'm not careful I go through half a pound at a time).

But I was wondering if anyone else had any alternative methods of eating them.

The clerk at the market yesterday told me she'd been told to roll them in her hand until the oils were either rubbed of or released (I was a little unclear about the point of rolling them). Said it made them less bitter. True? I'd try it, but I'm not sure I have the patience to take time out of my kumquat orgy to roll each one.

Any other thoughts on eating kumquats?
