Winter to me, means grapefruits. Some people turn their noses up at these pink beauties because they find them far too tart, but I absolutely adore them. When ripe and in season, they can actually be quite sweet, in a tart kind of way.
Some say the clementine was developed in Algeria by Father Clement Rodier,a French missionary,in Algeria. Cardamom plays an important role in Algerian sweets; paired with star anise in gingery honey syrup, this recipe produces an irresistible aroma.
