Introduction: Clementyne Steamer - a Hot Orange Drink
It's fun to make!
Having recently moved near the Tyne river in England, I decided to name the drink after the steam ships that used to operate in the area in the early 20th century. You'll see why in a moment.
- 1 clementine
- optional sweetener
- 1 steam wand
- 1 small single cup french press, or Aeropress.
Skewer a clementine at least 30 times in order to make escape routes for steam
Step 1: Steam the Clementine
Stick the steam wand halfway into it, put it in a glass or cup, and steam it.
This WILL spray hot water droplets all over the place. Steam it until the pressure runs out (i.e. cook it).
Step 2: Crush and Steep the Clementine
Crush the clementine thoroughly, and transfer it to the press and add hot or cold water. Optionally steep it for another 4 minutes.
Step 3: Press, Sweeten, Serve
Press and serve. Sweeten to taste.
