No, not the Oh my darlin' Clementine although a few of those and she'd be someones darlin"
This is Billy's recipe

CLEMENTINE recipe
Madam Rouviere's Clementines in cognac (we use cheapest brandy we can get can use whisky if preffered )

2 lbs 3 ozs granulated sugar
3/4 of a pint of water
2 lbs 3 ozs clementines smaller the better washed and dried thoroughly
(Don't peel them as you eat everything, skins and all)
1/2 a pint of brandy or whiskey

Method.
put sugar & water in pan heat gently until sugar dissolved, then boil for a few seconds.
stab clementines several times each with a cocktail stick.
boil clementines for 5 mins a day for 5 days in a row
after 5th day pour in brandy ,or whiskey straight away, and stir in.
bottle in sterilised jars.

can be eaten after a month but will keep well. we usually leave ours for 3months at least

Enjoy

I saw a lovely page on the web with all sorts of pictures of them but it will not copy for me...
but they are little tiny tangerines and we can get them here seedless.

Yes they are the little Manderine and here I think they are all clumped as Tagerines.
I use the little ones in my trifles.

Billy also said the skins stay on as every part is eaten..
I'm going to edit and make it a bit clearer in the recipe.
