These juicy little citrus fruit are an icon of the festive season, often ripe during late autumn through winter. They're mostly peeled and eaten on their own, but can be creatively used to flavour deserts.

Similar to other citrus fruits, clementines are a great source of vitamin C - a potent antioxidant. Vitamin C also aids with absorption of non-heme iron, that found in plant sources.
