I bought a load of reduced tangerines from the supermarket today, but I just tried one and it was horrible - really sour. So if they're all like that I can't eat them as they are, but I'd rather not chuck them away. I was thinking if I cooked them with sugar somehow they might turn out alright, so any suggestions?

There's only one way to find out if they're all like that, really.

I know, but my tastebuds are protesting against trying another one just yet. :yucky:

I can't see a smoothie being very nice, it would probably taste far too sour. I do know a nice recipe for cake with tangerines in, but the problem with that is the other ingredients are really expensive, so it would be a waste if it turned out bad. I think I'll try my jam idea, that way if it goes wrong I'll only be wasting the sugar.

Ah, okay... Good luck then! I Hope it turns out well.

Peel them.
Melt milk chocolate in a bowl, dip each segment into the chocolate, put all the coated segments onto a plate in a pile, drizzle some melted white chocolate onto the top. Levae to set in the fridge - then enjoy x

Not being funny...but why don't you go out into the snow in your underwear and throw them at your friend like the did in the mighty boosh? Only i think they used satsumas in the boosh but i'm sure tangerines would work just as well

Snow in May in the UK.
Not being funny....but I see no problems with that plan. :nothing:



Throw them in a saucepan with some red wine and sweet spices and warm it up, mulled wine, mmmmm.

Jelly

Sorbet

This cake (a variation of one by Nigella Lawson)

Flourless tangerine cake

4-5 tangerines
6 eggs
225g sugar
250g ground almonds
1 heaping tsp. baking powder


Put the tangerines in a pot with some cold water, bring to the boil and cook for 2 hours. Drain and, when cool, cut each tangerine in half and remove the seeds. Dump the tangerines - skins, pith, fruit and all - and give a quick blitz. Then tip in all the remaining ingredients and pulse to a pulp. Preheat the oven to 375º F. Butter and line an 8-inch cake tin.

Pour the cake mixture into the prepared pan and bake for an hour, when a skewer will come out clean; you'll probably have to cover with foil after about 40 minutes to stop the top burning. Remove from the oven and leave to cool, on a rack, but in the pan. When the cake's cold, you can take it out of the tin. I think this is better a day after it's made, but I don't complain about eating it any time.

Satsumas!
I just don't know if tangerines would have the same magic comedy element...

I've had that cake, it was :sogood: especially because it had chocolate melted on top as well. But I didn't want to try making it this time because the clementines were so sour I thought they might spoil it, so I made marmalade and put it in the middle of a victoria sponge. Turned out pretty good.

no need to be sour. i was just saying.

and yes I did say "not being funny" coz i didn't want people to think i was trying to be funny..i'm not a funny person anyway. its just genuinely what came to mind when i saw the thread title as i'd recently watched that episode of the boosh.
