It's that lovely time of year again, when even though the weather is getting colder, bright little boxes of clementines start popping up in store windows. Now is their season, and it's ours to exercise a little bit a of will power and optimism in the dark.

I learned this fabulous little party trick when I was a school teacher years ago (thank you Ana Opitz of Pravda!) and have been showing other folks how to do it for years. Its ALWAYS a crowd pleaser. You can check out the short video How To below along with instructions and a nice clip of how to lay them in water for optimal effect. Enjoy!

What You Need

  • One or more clementines
