Favorite Things: Clementini

Never had these until I moved to Italy. They are grown mostly in Southern Italy, Morocco and South America. They are delicious.

At the market I go to, (Trionfale) you can buy a kilo for 1 euro. This morning I noticed they were over 3 euros per kilo at the Campo dei Fiori market. This is why I walk all the way to Trionfale...over triple the price? Uhm no.

I love these. So full of flavor.

We have them, but they are kind of expensive. 1 euro/kilo isn't a bad price, even with the exchange rate. 3/kilo is highway robbery.

Campo market is ludicrous. And not that good, IMO.

Everything OK in your neck of the (riotous) woods?

Clementini = Christmas!!

My son is a January baby and I ate these by the case in my last month of pregnancy. Might be why he loves them so much. I can't live without them at this time of year.

Ciao tutti...I plan to enjoy them all season.

I agree 3/kilo is ridiculous. Eleonora, I stayed in after running an errand earlier that day. Which was a good thing as there were problems by Largo Argentina.

We're seriously into the clemintini, too. Here they're 1.30 a kilo, so not too shabby for a small village shop.
