Jan Powis treated us to these delicious clementine segments dipped in chocolate at the Christmas buffet supper. They
are really refreshing and so simple to make.
Clementine Segments dipped in Dark Chocolate, Waitrose
Melt some dark chocolate with a high cocoa content (70% or more) in a heatproof bowl over a pan of just simmering water. Dip in the clementine segments and leave to set in the fridge.
My cousin was recently recollecting his teenage years in late 1950’s Leeds when his father would buy a barrel of beer at Christmas time for making
orange shandy. I had never heard of orange shandy and asked him for the recipe. Unfortunately I was unable to find any mild beer, which is a popular choice of beer in Yorkshire and have used bitter instead.
Half a glass of mild or bitter, small amount of orange squash, then top up with lemonade, cold water or tonic.
It makes quite a pleasant low alcohol drink.
