One of my favorite things about winter is the citrus fruit. Not that I live anywhere that gets to take advantage of fresh fruit in the winter, but I do get to buy boxes of those darling clementines.
Martha Stewart Living had a really simple recipe for clementines this month (Really, the whole February issue is great!) so I decided to give it a whirl.
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
8 clementines, peeled and thinly sliced crosswise
1. Bring water, sugar and cinnamon to a simmer in a small saucepan. Cook until sugar dissolves, about 1 minute.
2. Arrange clementines in a large bowl. Pout warm syrup over top, and let stand for at least 30 minutes.
3. Divide clementines and syrup among four bowls and enjoy!
Extraordinarily simple and very delicious!
