Product Talk: Clementines

ClementinesI was thrilled to walk into Brookshire’s last week and see a bag of tiny, tender, juicy clementines!

I love this winter citrus and so do my kids (they’re so perfect for school lunches).

A clementine is sort of a cross between a tangerine and an orange. It’s Spanish in origin and features a dark, glossy orange skin that is easy to peel with super-juicy segments inside.

Less acidic than oranges, a clementine is very sweet and sometimes hard to distinguish from a mandarin orange.

At only 35 calories per fruit, it provides 60 percent of the recommended daily allowance of vitamin C.

One of the greatest things to do with a clementine this time of year is to peel it, eat the flesh and simmer the peel, along with cinnamon sticks and whole cloves, in some water on your stove for a wintry aroma.
