   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           tangerine juice
      1/3  cup           lemon juice
    2                    tangerines -- grated zest only
      1/4  pound         butter
    4      oz            sugar
    8                    egg yolks
 
  
 
  
  
    
   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.
