Dessert ideas: What to do with clementines?

Clementine is the citrus fruit that everyone expects throughout the year and that we find just before the holidays. We, therefore, offer you some dessert recipes based on clementines to please everyone!

Clementine jam

Jam reminds us all of a childhood memory. Whether with red fruits, citrus fruits, or other flavors, jams are always a good way to comfort yourself. With the arrival of extreme cold and clementines on our markets, why not make a few pots, especially if you have a large number of clementines. Be aware that this recipe works even better with ripe clementines, and therefore a little sweeter than acidic.

To prepare the jam:

  • Start by peeling the clementines
  • In a large saucepan, heat the clementines with water and sugar
  • Squeeze lightly halfway through cooking
  • Filter and then reserve in a jar

The process for making jam is often the same: fruit, sugar, and water if needed. If you like to make your own jams, we advise you to take a look at our favorite jam recipes.
