Fun in the Kitchen with Ojai Pixie Tangerines!

Posted by on March 7, 2014

Disclosure: I received product for recipe purposes. All stories and creations are my own. 

It’s that time of the year again, the time when Ojai’s Pixie Tangerines are fully ripe and in season.  Earlier this week I received a nice shipment from Melissa’s Produce, and let me tell you, these TASTE excellent this year.  Citrus, full of flavor and juice.  But, it also means they’re excellent to bake and create with.

Pixie TangerinesWith as good as these tasted this year it was hard not to just gobble them up, but right away I had a few ideas as to what I wanted to make so I got to work:



I grabbed a jar of orange marmalade and began cooking in the fry pan.  I sliced up 3 of the tangerines and threw them in with the marmalade.  Some guesses as to what I was making included a sauce to go over chicken (sounds good, but no!) and some thought I was making orange marmalade, but still no.

The final creation: Pixie Tangerine Trifle
