It's that time of year when we could all use a little extra sunshine, right? While we can't tinker with the clocks or the earth's orbit -- as much as we'd like to -- we can shove a bunch of clementines into our faces. Eating clementines is basically like taking sunshine pills, so we've been going at them without abandon. These tiny Mandarin orange variations tend to pop up right around Thanksgiving and the inevitable trudge towards winter. In other words, they come just when we need them most.

While we love to eat clementines, three and four at a time, without regard for social graces like sharing or coming up for air, we also like to cook with them. The sweet tartness of clementines and their utter lack of seed -- in an ideal world -- and tough pith make them perfect for baking, roasting, candying, juicing and everything in between. What's your favorite clementine recipe (aside from the aforementioned face shoving, of course)? Here are 21 clementine recipes we love.
