My first Me and Martha project and I failed to get a photo! I had the camera out and everything, but just as I was about to snap some shots, the tops of the homemade jalapeño poppers that I was making simultaneously flew off, hit the bottom of the oven, and caused massive smoke to fill the kitchen (i.e. multi-tasking: why I shouldn't do it). This was the sign that the poppers were done and so I promptly forgot all about the clementine photo shoot and sat down to enjoy my cream cheese stuffed peppers.
Anyway! The Clementines in Cinnamon Syrup are delicious and super simple. You don't even need a photo because the whole thing is basically sliced citrus in a bowl with a clear syrup over the top, which I am pretty sure you can imagine. Got the idea? Super. If you like fancy, imagine a cinnamon stick in the bowl. Perfect. What's the point of even taking photos when I have all of you and your spectacular imaginations?
Here's all you need:
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cinnamon sticks
8 clementines, peeled and thinly sliced crosswise
1. Bring water, sugar, and cinnamon sticks to a simmer in a small saucepan.
2. Arrange clementines in a large bowl. Pour warm syrup over top. Let stand for at least 30 minutes.
3. Divide clementines and syrup among four bowls.
That's it! Martha informs me the Clementines are in season, so it's the perfect time to make these.
