What can I substitute for Clementines in a recipe?
Savory and sweet, these clementine recipes are a citrus lover’s dream. You can swap in clementines for mandarin oranges or tangerines, too. Use 2 clems to sub for an 11 oz. can of mandarin oranges, 3 clems for a 15 oz. can and 1 clem for 1 tangerine. Pucker up! I tasted many types of Asian chicken salad in California.
How do you cook fresh Clementines?
Slice clementines very thinly. Put sugar and water in a heavy bottomed pan on medium heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add clementine slices and simmer on low for about 15-20 minutes. Pull clementines from sugar mixture and place on parchment or silpat until cool.
