Spiced Clementine Jam

Spiced Clementine Jam

A very simple yet flavoursome jam perfect for a winter cheeseboard. Here we have paired it with the creamy Castello® Tropical Fruit and Almond Cream Cheese and crackers, but it would also pair well with the bitey Castello® Black Pepper Cream Cheese.

Citrusy Sweet


  • 6 fresh clementine
  • 2 tbsp fresh ginger, grated
  • 500 ml water
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 5 cardamom pods
  • 2 cloves
  • 300 g sugar
  • lemon
  • 125 g Castello® Tropical Fruit & Almond Cream Cheese
  • crackers, to serve


1. Peel the clementine and cut the flesh into small pieces. Finely slice the peel.

2. Add to a large saucepan with the grated ginger, water and spices.

3. Boil the mixture on medium heat for 45 minutes until the clementine peel is almost see-through.

4. Add the sugar and simmer for another 45 minutes. Add lemon juice to taste.

5. Carefully pour the jam into 2 sterilised jars and store in the fridge.

6. Serve with Castello® Tropical Fruit & Almond Cream Cheese and crackers!

TIP: If you can't find fresh clementine you can substitute mandarins or even oranges!
