Serves: 24-28 slices
Ingredients
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 6 clementine oranges, thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. In a medium sized pot, add the sugar and water. Bring to a light boil, then reduce to a simmer and stir until all of the sugar has completely dissolved. Add in the cinnamon stick and clementine slices. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, until all of the slices have softened.
  2. You can just put these in tupperware or a jar, and they will last for about 8-10 days, or, if you like, you can jar them properly. This means that you will have to get out your jars and place them in boiling water for a full 5 minutes. Remove the jars with tongs, dump out the water, bring a fresh pot of water to a boil, place the jars back in for another 5 minutes. Repeat this step a third time, then place them on a clean surface to cool before storing your clementines in them. This method will allow them to stay fresh for up to 3 months.
