Orange Curd

Orange curd is thick enough to spread over toast or it can be easily swirled into yogurt for a treat.

Equipment

  • Candy thermometer

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • pinch salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup orange juice fresh-squeezed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Instructions

  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, beat butter, honey, and salt until smooth.
  • Mix in the eggs and egg yolks one at a time until just combined.
  • Mix in the orange juice and lemon juice. The mixture may separate a little at this point; that's fine.
  • Transfer the mixture to a small pot on medium-low heat. Stir regularly until the mixture reaches 175 F on a candy thermometer, about 20 minutes. It should be bubbling periodically, but not a fast-paced boil.
  • Remove from the heat and strain out any clumps with a fine sieve. Press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the curd and poke a few holes in it to let the steam release. When cooled to room temperature, refrigerate until ready to use.

Stays fresh for up to one week in the refrigerator.
