  • 1 pound blood oranges

  • 1 cup sugar

  • 3 eggs, whisked

  • 1 dash salt

  • ½ cup butter


  1. Zest 2 blood oranges and set aside. Juice enough blood oranges to make 3/4 cup juice after straining out pulp and seeds.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
