Roasted Brandied Clementines



Cooks in:        Serves:4

  • 3 clementines, halved, with peel intact (or clementines, naartjies or oranges)
  • 6 tsp brandy or pimms
  • 8 tsp muscovado sugar
  • Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, or double thick cream, to serve

What to do

1. Pre-heat your braai grill to med-high and your oven to the grill setting. When it's hot, place each clemengold half cut-side down and grill for about 45 seconds - 1 minute, or until just charred. Remove and place the clemengold halves in an ovenproof baking dish, cut side facing up.

2. Sprinkle each half with a little brandy or pimms and muscovado sugar. Place the baking dish in your oven and grill for 5 minutes or until the sugar has melted and the clemengolds are just starting to bubble.

Using a sharp paring knife, slice around the inside of each clemengold skin so that the segments are loose before you cook them, this will make them easier to remove, which means you'll be able to eat them faster. Believe me, they're so delicious that things could get messy.
Its not essential to grill these on a braai, but the charred caramelisation that it introduces adds a huge element to the final flavour.
