Our mandarins are super sweet and delicious in South Africa. We have used the new Honey Gold range from Woolworths. If yours are a little tart you can add some sugar syrup for sweetness. Sugar syrup can be made by combining equal weights of water and white sugar, and heating the mixture until the sugar dissolves.
