      Title: Tangerine Curd
      Yield: 1 servings

      1/2 c Tangerine juice
      1/4 lb Butter
      1/4 c Lemon juice
      4 oz Sugar
      2 Tangerines; Grated zest
      8 Egg yolks -only
     This makes a delicious filling for cakes and tarts and can also be used as a spread for biscuits, scones or croissants.
      COMBINE THE JUICES, ZEST,SUGAR and butter in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Beat the yolks in a bowl until liquid. Beat 1/4 of the boiling liquid into the yolks and return the remaining liquid to a boil over low heat. Beat the yolk mixture into the boiling liquid and continue beating until it thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Do not allow the curd to boil or it will scramble. Pour into a clean bowl, cover surface with plastic wrap and chill.

      2 lg Oranges, zest and juice of

   Finely grate the orange rind, Squeeze the juice from the orange and lemon and remove the pips. Thoroughly whisk the eggs. Place the butter in a double pan (Big pan with boiling water with a smaller pan, or bowl, inside). When the butter has melted add the grated rind, juices, sugar and eggs. Cook gently (still in the double pan) until the curd thickens, stirring frequently to obtain an even consistency.
