LOOKING for: Tangerine Ideas

uniqcrafts2000August 7, 2007

I just bought a house with a very big Tangerine tree. I was told they will become of season around October or November. I want to make sure that I am ready for them.

Does anyone have any ideas or recipes for all these Tangerines I will have?

Thank you in advance.

All 4 recipes below sound good to me but especially the tangerine curd.

oh wow! lucky you! i just know i'd be making that tangerine curd recipe and mixing it with creme fraiche! whisk the 2 recipes together and put the resulting mix together into wine glasses and freeze a little while, or place them between VERY crisp cookies ala barbara 52's frozen ice cream sandwiches!!!

Creme fraiche -- chase

1 cup heavy or whipping cream
1 cup sour cream.
 Whisk together pour into a jar and let stand in a warm place for 12 hours. Stir well and refrigerate for 36 hours before using. Will keep for 10 days.

Segments from tangerines could substitute for the canned ones. The lemon juice keeps it from being cloying sweet.

Mandarin Orange Jello

3 oz. pkg. orange jello
1 c. boiling water

1 c. apricot nectar
juice of 1 lemon

2-11 oz. cans mardarin oranges, drained

Dissolve jello in boiling water. Chill til thickened somewhat.
Stir in apricot nectar and lemon juice. Chill til thickened.
Stir in mandarin orange segments. Chill until set.

I made this as a breakfast bread. Orange juice & rind may be substituted.

2/3 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt

I also use the segments, cut in half, in cold slaw with a sweet/sour mayo dressing.
