Delicious ClemenGold Recipes to Celebrate the Return of Our Favourite Winter Citrus
It’s that time of year again when our favourite member of the citrus family, the ClemenGold, is back in town, bringing with it all its unmatched juicy pizzazz. The ClemenGold is distinguished from other citrus fruits by its fragranced (mostly) seedless flesh, delicious tart-sweetness, and brilliantly orange, easy-to-peel skin.
These gorgeous globes of juicy delight can be used to make something fresh and light or can lend their flavour to create something a little more dark and indulgent. When something so special only comes around once a year, we do well to use them in every way possible and create these four mouthwatering ClemenGold recipes…
4 Delicious ClemenGold Recipes
Clemengold, Cucumber & Jalapeno Gin & Tonic Cocktail with Polenta Crackers
Although ClemenGolds are only available for a specific season, you’ll be thrilled to know that a very special ClemenGold Gin exists for you to enjoy all year round.
This gin & tonic cocktail is a delightfully light combination of sweet and savoury, with a fruit base and a kick from jalapenos. Pair up your cocktail with these crispy ClemenGold polenta crackers as a pre-dinner aperitif.
Did you know? ClemenGold Gin is a Cape Dry-style gin with hints of citrus. It is infused with nine botanicals and sundried ClemenGold peels are using to give it its signature flavour.
Sticky ClemenGold, Chilli and Ginger Chicken Wings
Mmm… do we love a good chicken wing! There really isn’t anything more satisfying than getting stuck into sticky wings, with the right glaze, they’re finger-lickingly good.
These wings have a real kick from the ginger and chilli, with just the right amount of sweetness from the ClemenGolds to tie everything together. Serve this to a crowd of friends and watch them get devoured. To freshen the dish, add a simple salad of fresh veggies.
Did you know? ClemenGold fruit is virtually seedless – hooray!
Vanilla and ClemenGold Jelly Cookie Bars
These delightful looking fridge-set cookie bars are perfect for a light and subtle dessert, with the benefit of containing very little refined sugar. These wobbly wonders are comprised of a divine ginger biscuit base, topped with a creamy vanilla yoghurt layer and finished off with a sweet ClemenGold jelly.
We just adore that bright fruity jelly and how well the zingy citrus is balanced by the creamy yoghurt layer. Something different and delicious!
Did you know? On-farm creches enable ClemenGold staff to come to work with a clear conscience, knowing that their children are cared for and prepared for school.
ClemenGold Dark Chocolate Mousse Tart
Chocolate and orange have always been a classic combo. We kick this well-known pairing up a notch and infuse this dark choc mousse with gorgeous ClemenGold zest and juice for a subtly sweet and tart twist.
This tasty tart will take a bit of work to make but when you sink your teeth into that sweet centre and hit the nutty, buttery crust, you’ll thank your hardworking and determined self for the effort. A memorable way to end an evening of entertaining friends and family.
Did you know? ClemenGold fruit is sun-ripened and hand picked by selected growers from across the world.
