  • Whisk blood orange juice, sugar, eggs, and salt together in a medium-sized pot. Warm slowly over low heat. Add butter and reserved zest. Cook, stirring constantly, until curd has thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Pour curd into a bowl and cool on the counter for 15 minutes. Place a sheet of plastic wrap directly on top of curd and refrigerate until ready to use.

Cook's Note:

If there is not enough juice to make 3/4 cup after straining, supplement with lemon juice.
