I got so excited when I discovered one of my gorgeous friends and business partners, Tuyen, has 2 small kumquat trees. You see, I hadn’t seen a kumquat tree for many years. Glenn’s grandmother used to have one in her backyard in Cronulla, but that was many years ago.

As a kid we would be busting at the seams waiting til my mum’s homemade lemon spread (aka lemon butter) to be cool enough to have a spoonful or to spread lavishly on a slice of white bread.
