Method

  1. Put the cream and milk into a large pan and gently bring to just below boiling point. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together the yolks, cornflour, sugar, clementine zest and juice. Gradually pour on the hot milk mixture, whisking the sugar mixture constantly.
  2. Wipe out the saucepan and pour the custard mixture back into it. Heat gently, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the custard is thickened, coating the spoon. Eat hot or cold.

This is the first custard I have ever made and is by far the tastiest I have ever eaten. Really easy to make too.

Made my very first custard this morning and will serve it over mince meat squares tomorrow evening.
Two comments: I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (the real stuff) and sieved the custard to obtain a really velvety smoothness.
We have a very sweet tooth, so I did not lower the amount of sugar, but I'm sure for some people 150 grs. would be sufficient.
The clementine flavor is lovely and makes for a nice surprise ;o)
