This fruit salad uses one of the star fruits of winter — the clementine. With a sweet caramel sauce and some dark chocolate, it makes an easy and beautiful dessert to serve after a hearty winter meal.
Serves: 6
Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 10-15 minutes

12 seedless clementines
6 tbsp honey or golden syrup
125g caster sugar
150g dark chocolate, 70%


Peel the clementines and separate them into segments.

Put the honey or golden syrup and sugar into a large non-stick saucepan or cooking dish and cook at medium temperature stirring regularly until it becomes a brown caramel colour. Take care not to let it burn.

Add the clementines and stir well until they are coated with the caramel.

Using a potato peeler or grater, peel some shavings of dark chocolate.

Serve the clementines on a dish and sprinkle with the chocolate.
