As I was in the 7th arrondissement at the marché rue Cler, I stumbled upon this stand of bright orange Clementines. Knwowing that I over indulged myself this year at Christmas (as always), I picked some up. In France we eat these during the Christmas season and winter months. I love them because they are
seedless, sweet, juicy, and packed with vitamin C and the fiber content helps fill you up and satisfy hunger! Some believe that it was Father Clement, an Algerian monk, who discovered them in the mandarin garden at his orphanage and named it clementino. Others claim that the Clementine originated in China much earlier and then migrated to the Mediterranean.
