I have a ridiculous surplus of clementines. I thought of baking the infamous 'flourless clementine cake' but realized it would barely put a dent in the bounty. Anyone have a recipe (any recipe) that uses a good amount of clementines?

I would juice them and enjoy that or make a curd like lemon curd. Or freeze the juice for smoothies or sorbet, or popsicles.
Candied Clementine Peel is what i've been doing w/ all my boxes of them, after we eat them.You can puree them,skin and all, and add cinnamon and eggs, for a french toast coating, but it doesn't use up much of them.

I am making crystallized clementines using David Lebovitz recipe for candied citron. Could make mRmalade. Can dry the peels. Stick in cloves for pomanders.

Unless you have organic clementines, I don't think it is a good idea to actually eat the peels. Citrus fruits seem to be sprayed with all sorts of questionable chemicals that can't be very good for human consumption.

One option is Roasted Chicken with Clementines. Alexandra (who just won the Food52 dark, leafy greens contest!) adapted it from Yotam Ottolenghi's Jerusalem. We've made this chicken several times for dinner. Beautiful, delicious, easy. http://www.alexandracooks.com/2013/12/31/roasted-chicken-with-clementines/
