200g caster sugar

First make the candied clementines. Combine the water and sugar in a big saucepan and produce to the boil. Minimize the ends off the clementines and reduce into slices, roughly four or 5 slices per clementine.
When the water is boiling, add the slices to the pan and simmer on a low warmth for 1 and a 1/2 hours. You have to to test on them each 20 minutes or so. You’ll know when they’re finished because the water will grow to be a thick, gloopy syrup and could have diminished by about half . The clementine skins will likely be comfortable.
Take away them fastidiously from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Pour the syrup right into a cup.As soon as utterly cool, place them (not touching one another) in a Tupperware container and place within the fridge with the syrup till you want them.
