Ingredients

  • 6 seedless clementines or easy-peelers, peeled, separated into segments, white pith removed
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • Juice 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp grated clementine zest
  • 1 vanilla pod, split, or 1 tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 2 cardamom pods, lightly bashed, or 1 star anise or cinnamon stick (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp brandy (optional)

Method

  1. Put all the ingredients in a pan and cook over a medium heat, stirring now and then until the fruit breaks down and the juices thicken – about 30 minutes.
  2. Cool, then decant into a clean jar or an airtight container. Enjoy on porridge, yogurt and pancakes, or add to a cheese or charcuterie board instead of chutney.

  1. Don’t waste it: Leftovers would be great with roast duck or goose, or rippled through cream as a dessert.

  2. Make 2-3 days ahead. Cool the compote, decant into a clean jar and store in the fridge.
