Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the carrot, onion, celery, chillies and garlic, and cook for 5-10 mins until the veg begin to soften. Add the rinsed lentils. Pour on the hot cooking liquor and two-thirds of the tangerine juice, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 20-25 mins or until the lentils are tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add a bit more ham liquor if the lentils look a little dry.
Remove from the heat and stir in the tangerine zest and remaining juice. Season with salt and pepper and allow to cool a little before stirring through the crème fraîche and parsley. Serve warm or at room temperature with the sliced ham.
