Thanks for helping answer this, Amanda! Really appreciate it. Clementines should be fine - but won't be quite the same as kumquats since they have a tart/sweet combo with the pulp/skin. Would love to hear how the clementines work for you! I know kumquats can be hard to fine at times :-(

Oh, my darlin', Clementines! I'll give it a try. Oddly, I can buy everything from patio furniture to fine wines in my mega grocery store but no kumquats, which are in season. Hmmm. Thanks for your help.

I'd use clementines.
