8 clementines (seedless Mandarin orange)
1 large handful of flaked almonds
10 fresh mint leaves, finely sliced
6 tablespoons caster sugar
4 tablespoons water seeds from 1 vanilla pod
100g/31/2oz best-quality cooking chocolate (70% cocoa solids), shaved
1 can condensed milk

Cooking Procedure:
Peel the clementines, slice across thinly and remove the pips.
Arrange on 4 plates and sprinkle over the almonds and mint.
Bring the sugar and water to the boil, add the vanilla seeds and allow to simmer until the liquid becomes a light golden syrup. Try not to touch it too much at this stage.
Drizzle the syrup over the clementines and top with the shaved chocolate before serving. Pour condensed milk before serving

Removing seeds from vanilla pods:
1. Score the pods.
2. Scrape the seeds out.
3. Put the unwanted pods in a jar of sugar for delicious flavoured vanilla sugar.
