Easy Clementine Preserves
A quick and easy jam that doesn’t require canning and is delicious spread on toast or as an accompaniment to a honey baked ham!
Good morning, everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? I am so relieved to say that I am sitting pretty. With the exception of a trip to the grocery store this morning and a few presents left to wrap, I’m ready to roll. Since I’m not cooking for clients this year, the free time has allowed me to get things done without feeling rushed or resentful. (Who knew the holidays could actually be enjoyable?) The kids and I are going to do some baking today and I’ve got menus planned for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The best part? None of the recipes are for private chef clients or blogging purposes. I get to cook what I want, when I want, how I want. To say I’m excited would be an understatement!!
Last month, Imperial Sugar asked me to create some canning recipes for their recipe archive on their website. I wanted to keep things seasonal and these clementine preserves couldn’t come at a better time. I love anything heavy on the citrus and clementines and tangerines are my favorite part of winter produce. The preserves aren’t canned but they will last in the fridge for up to a couple months. They make a perfect neighbor gift and are absolutely delicious slathered on toast or as a filling in a thumbprint cookie.
Have a great day everyone and hope you’re enjoying the last few days before Christmas! Stay safe and warm, everyone!!
