Tangerine Bars Recipe

The Hale Groves Team


1 medium Hale tangerine
1/3 cup butter or margarine
¾ cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 cups quick-cooking raw oatmeal
½ cup raisins
1/teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt, or to taste


Preheat the oven to 350F.  Lightly oil an 8x8x2-inch baking pan.  Peel and section the tangerine, working over a bowl or plate so none of the juice is lost.  Remove the seeds and cut the sections into bite-sized pieces.  Set aside.  Mix the butter or margarine and the brown sugar in a small saucepan and set over low heat, stirring occasionally.  Combine the raw oatmeal, raisins, cinnamon, and salt in a large mixing bowl, then add the reserved tangerine pieces.  Toss all the ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.  Remove the butter mixture from heat and pour over oatmeal mixture until all ingredients are coated, but still crumbly.  Turn the mixture into baking pan and press firmly and evenly to cover bottom of the pan.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a rich golden brown on the edges.  Remove from oven and cut into bars while still hot.  Cool in pan, and serve.

YIELD:  16 Bars.
