Caramelised Clementines

A fruity tangy dessert perfect for using up spare citrus fruit in the fruit bowl. It is also a simple recipe; but take care making the hot caramel sauce.

Serves: 4


  • 100g Granulated Sugar
  • 150ml Water
  • 120ml Orange juice
  • 4 Clementines, peeled


  1. Place sugar and water in a small pan.
  2. Dissolve the sugar gently, stirring continuously.
  3. Bring to the boil without stirring until the mixture caramelises to a medium brown colour.
  4. Remove from the heat and gradually add the orange juice - take care as it tends to spit at this stage.
  5. Return to a gentle heat and allow the mixture to dissolve. Allow to cool.
  6. Place clementines in a serving dish and pour over the caramel sauce. Allow to marinate for 1-2 hours before serving.
