I first discovered this recipe while watching Christmas specials on Food Network Canada. The original recipe is called Clementine Jelly and aired in a special show called Jamie’s Best Ever Christmas. I hope they show reruns of the episode this year, because it’s such a fun holiday special, and Jamie is so enjoyable to watch.
