  1. Place the clementine zest and juice into a large, clean, heatproof bowl.
  2. Lightly beat the eggs and whisk into the fruit juice together with the caster sugar.
  3. Place the bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the base of the bowl does not touch the water. Add the butter cubes then cook over a gentle heat, stirring continuously until the curd thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon. This will take about 20 minutes.
  4. Pour the mixture into sterilised jars. Cover with a waxed paper disc, seal the jars and allow to cool.
  5. Label, and add the date. Store in a cool place for up to 1 month. Once opened keep refrigerated and use within 2 weeks.
