Preheat the oven to 180°C.
Melt the sugar, butter and water together.
Mix well, and when it starts to thicken, after 2 minutes, add the apples and cook for 5 minutes.
Remove the apples, and add the kumquats to the pan.
Cook until the sauce becomes syrupy, about another 5 minutes and leave to cool.
Place the puff pastry onto a greased tray, fold the sides up, and cross the area in which you will be putting the fruit.
Place the apples and kumquats onto the criss crossed part of the pastry.
Pour any remaining syrup over the fruit.
Sprinkle with sugar.
Brush milk along the sides for a brown finish.
Bake in the oven until the puff pastry is crisp, about 20-25 minutes.
Serve with plain vanilla icecream.
