Jammy business
Substitute mandarins for lemons for a sweet, orangey curd for toast spreads, curd tarts and sponge cake filling. Fabulous in cheesecake too, or caramelise mandarin slices on chocolate cakes and tarts.

Eat your greens
Toss mandarin segments through winter salad greens like baby spinach with a red wine vinaigrette. Or stir through steamed broccoli or brussels sprouts, with slivered almonds and a dab of butter.

Starter for 10
Mandarin segments add winter freshness to sauted scallops or salmon or raw fish ceviche.
