I had so many mandarin satsuma's this year I could not eat them all or give them away. So I froze some! I washed them and put them in gallon bags whole and froze them. That was the last of December, now I am getting 1 at a time out thawing it on the counter until almost thawed and it is so good taste like oranges sherbet. Do not microwave. Now when I want fruit I just go to the freezer. I have 5 bags frozen.
