I like squeezing one into a margarita. They are quite juicy and really kick up the drink. You can get rid of few of them in a evening. I zest them too if making a pitcher.

Are Clementines not common in supermarkets in the States? Here we just eat them as snacks...I have put slices in salads, but the way most people I know eat them is just to peel them and eat them.

they're available here almost year 'round, but just at different prices and quality.

i've used them in stir frys, tossed in at the last second. they are the sweetness component of that thai style of salty, spicy, sour, sweet thing.

Margaritas make anything taste good

Clementines would also make a tasty syrup for pancakes.

Cut the tops off and set aside. Scoop out the meat be careful not to break it. then mix the pulp with rissoto butter fine chopped onion. Stuff into the shells bake with tops on or serve cold. No measurements just an idea.

I have cooked that Ottolenghi recipe for roast chicken, with clementines and fennel. It is absolutely delicious but as I mentioned to Siegel I found the fennel not cooked quite enough for me, I either like my fennel raw or softish and it was too hard. Next time (and there will be a next time it was so good) and the chicken although cooked through it could have done with a little more cooking.

I picked them up after I saw several ads on TV. They are great as snacks & in salads (as I mentioned), but looking for new ideas.

Clementines are in season from approximately October through February. Clementines grown in the United States, mostly in California and Florida, are at the peak of their season in December and January. Spain and Morocco also export clementines to the United States throughout the winter.

ISO Ideas For Clementines I bought a bag of "Cuties." So far, I've eaten them as snacks, & put them in a salad. I'm not a big baker. Any new interesting ideas for these little cuties? TIA :chef: [CENTER][ATTACH]16886[/ATTACH][/CENTER] 3 stars 1 reviews
