  • Combine the mandarin juice with the remaining ingredients and sugar and mix with the whisk on a hand mixer, then bring to the boil over a medium heat stirring constantly. As soon as the mixture thickens and turns creamy, immediately remove the pan from the heat, stir for a further 2 mins. or so. Pour the crème into a bowl through a sieve, cover and allow to cool, then chill for about an hour. Beat the cream until stiff, fold into the crème.
  • In a stainless steel pan, toast the almonds over a medium heat until pale brown and place on a sheet of baking paper, close together. Boil the sugar and water in the same pan without stirring. Reduce the heat and simmer, shaking the pan occasionally, until a medium-brown caramel has formed. Pour the caramel over the almonds. Allow the almond brittle to cool for about 15 mins., then break into pieces. Decorate with the mandarin crème.
