favor-“ette”: clementine votives

Here’s a cute one.

I always have a bowl of clementines sitting on my counter during the winter – easy to peel, portable and full of Vitamin C.

And while I’ve found an alternative use for them in this lovely potpourri, I think you’ll find these votives equally charming.

And they’re super easy to make. Simply remove half of the clementine peel, leaving the stem end intact. You can do it with a small knife for a clean cut, but I like the jagged edge you get when you do it by hand.

Then carefully remove the clementine segments from the reserved half. You will see a bit of white pith sticking up. This is your “wick”.

Trim the wick to about 1/4″, then pour a bit of olive oil over. Then light it!

Line them up on your table, cluster on a tray or float in a dish of water.

And let me know if you try it!
