Cooking process

Clementine alla Turca
The Clementine alla Turca is a dessert made with very nice fruit to serve and, although a bit 'longish in preparation for the waiting time of the caramelization of the skins, also very simple to implement. Interesting fruit cake.
I recommend you use clementines and mandarins not classic because it is more practical that the fruit has no seeds. To make the process of "attachment" of the simplest candied peels, I preferred to add glucose (the classical one that I also used to "glue" the candy for candy cake), but if you have not, with a little ' more patience, you can also avoid adding it.

    When the skins are dry, check their caramelization, you may have to repeat this operation. For this reason also the times of rest are rather indicative.
    When the skins are well caramelized, put the juice of 2 clementines with cloves in a saucepan and heat.
