  • ¼c | 60ml mandarin juice approx 2 mandarins worth
  • 2 mandarins Zested
  • 3tsp | 15g granulated sugar *
  • 1 egg


  • Place a pan of water on the stove, about a third full, and bring to a simmer.
  • Whisk all the ingredients together in a heatproof bowl.
  • Place the bowl over the pan of simmering water and keep whisking until the curd has thickened and has lightened in colour (this take around 3 minutes).
  • Remove from heat, tip into your serving bowl and leave to cool.
  • Once cool, cover and place in fridge until ready to serve.


*  This curd has a slightly sour finish to it, if you like very sweet things then I recommend adding up to another 3 tsp/15g sugar.
