    The smallest and sweetest variety of tangerine is sweet and tangy, contains no seeds and is…

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.

Just made this to use on a trifle, nice but very sweet as there is sweetness already from the clementine juice. I would cut the sugar to 100g.

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)
