Do you get as excited as I do when grocery stores start carrying those $5 to $6 bags of tangerines or clementines? I tend to go through one bag in less than a week.They're tangy, sweet, loaded with vitamin C, and they're easy to peel, making them the perfect snack for any time of day.
Like satsumas and clementines, tangerines are a type of mandarin. (Unlike tangerines, clementines have little to no seeds and easy-to-peel skin; satsumas hail from Japan.) The name "tangerine" comes from Tangier, Morocco, which was the port that the first batch of tangerines were shipped out of! For more on tangerines, keep reading.
