Three Ways To Use It
Spicy Clementine Chicken
Stir 1 tbsp all-purpose flour with 1/4 tsp salt and pepper in a shallow bowl. Coat 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts with mixture. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add 2 tsp oil, then chicken. Cook until golden, about 5 min per side. Stir in 1/2 cup Chili- clementine Marmalade and 2 minced garlic cloves. Cook until sauce is warm.
Orange Cream Cheese

Clementine-Ginger Carrot Soup
Melt 1 tbsp butter in a saucepan set over medium-high. Add 1 chopped onion and 1 tbsp finely grated ginger. Cook until onion softens, about 3 min. Add 4 medium coarsely chopped carrots and 3 cups vegetable broth. Simmer, covered, until carrots are tender, about 20 min. Stir in 1/2 cup orange juice and 3 tbsp Fresh Clementine Marmalade. Season with pepper. Purée in a blender until smooth.
