Baked Clementines with Vanilla Syrup

The clementines are peeled but kept whole and cooked in a vanilla syrup until caramelised. These are delicious on their own for breakfast or served with ice cream as dessert. 

Substitute:

  • No clementines? Satsumas work well instead. 
  • No vanilla extract? Try with vanilla paste. 
  • No honey or maple syrup? Use caster sugar instead. 
  • No cinnamon stick? Use a pinch of ground cinnamon. 
  • No star anise? Try with a couple of cloves.
