Ingredients

  • 2 cups water, plus 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 8 1/2 ounces extra-bittersweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 2 cups washed and sliced kumquats

Method

Step 1

In a medium saucepan, combine 2 cups water and the sugar and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and gradually add the cocoa powder, whisking until smooth. Cook the mixture at a gentle simmer for 30 minutes, until syrupy.

Step 2

Put the chocolate in a large bowl and add half the cocoa syrup, whisking until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Add the remaining syrup and 2 cups water and whisk well. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve and let cool.

Step 3

Chill the sorbet mixture, covered, until very cold, at least 4 hours, and up to 2 days. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. Serve with Candied Kumquats.

The kumquats will keep, refrigerated, for several weeks.
