ALGERIAN CLEMENTINES

Season: December

Description: Fruit size ranges from medium-small to medium; form likewise quite variable, with range from slightly oblate through globose to oblong and sometimes broadly pyriform from development of neck or collar; base usually rounded but sometimes collared or necked; apex depressed; occasionally with small navel. Rind medium in thickness; moderately firm and adherent, but easily peelable and does not puff until well after maturity; surface smooth and glossy, but slightly pebbled because of prominent oil glands; color deep orange to reddish-orange. Segments 8 to 12, slightly adherent; axis medium and open. Flesh color deep orange; tender and melting; juicy; flavor sweet; subacid and aromatic. Seeds very few to medium in number.

Suggested uses: Delicious as a snack. Add slices to salads, fruit salads, juice them and use the juice straight up at breakfast or later in the day in mixed drinks. The juice and finely grated zest are great in sauces, dressings, and to make sorbets. Candy the peels and chop them in baked goods, or infuse the peels in vodka.

Shelf life: 2 weeks in your refrigerator if you can keep the kids from eating them all in a day.
