Honey Tangerine Pudding – Just Right for Winter Entertaining!

Honey Tangerine Pudding – Just Right for Winter Entertaining!

Tangelos, Tangerines, and Navel oranges are among my favorite winter harvested citrus fruits. Here’s a good way to add them to your menu during a gloomy time of year. This recipe is a great one for entertaining because just a little goes a long way with the bright and fresh, sweet-tart flavor of citrus. Serve this in mini dessert glasses topped with toasted walnuts, dried chopped figs, and a special flavoring in some whipped cream for a simple yet sensational dessert.
