Clementine and orange caramel

Squeeze the juice from two of the clementines and set aside.

Peel the remaining fruit, removing as much of the bitter pith as possible.

Place the sugar in a pan with 100ml boiling water. Place over a very low heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Increase the heat slightly and boil until the sugar reaches a dark golden caramel.

Take off the heat and immediately add the reserved juice and liqueur. Stir to dissolve.

Pierce the fruit all over with a cocktail stick (so that it will absorb the liquid), place in a bowl and pour over the caramel. Cool, cover with a saucer so they are well submerged and allow to macerate for 24 hours.

Great as a dessert with vanilla ice cream or alternatively decant into a sterilised jar — you could even recycle old jars at home, and tie them with a festive ribbon. Makes the perfect gift.

Keep refrigerated.
