The clementine is named after one Father Clément in North Africa, who crossed a tangerine with a Seville orange and created his namesake fruit. He must have been quite pleased with the result (and we certainly are). Clementines reach their peak in December and January and have become synonymous with Christmas celebrations in many countries. Enjoy them just as they are, or try them in cakes, alongside roasts... Here are a dozen ways, but there are plenty more.
