Orange Curd

Inspired by the blueberry lemon curd tart, I decided to try to make orange curd. When you taste the lemon curd and then the orange curd, it is surprising that they are almost the same recipe. The lemon curd has such a tang to it, while the orange curd tastes so creamy. It reminds me of an orange creamsicle. So good on a piece of toast, ice cream or straight out of the jar. I found the outline for the label here

orange curd

1/2 cup (100g) sugar
1/2 cup (120ml)  fresh orange juice
6 tbsp (85g) melted butter, cooled
1 tbsp orange zest
3 eggs, beaten


In a double boiler, cook sugar, orange juice, butter, zest and eggs.
Whisk frequently until custard forms and bubbles appear, 10-15 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool completely.
