Orange Curd

I use this curd in a pie with a layer of chocolate ganache on the bottom and meringue on top. The sweetness of the orange with the more bitter dark ganache is decadent.

Main Ingredients

2 c. sugar

5 t. cornstarch

2 tsp. finely zested orange peel

2 c. freshly squeezed orange juice

1/2 c. water

1Mix the sugar and cornstarch together. Add the juice and the water and heat until thick and bubbly.

2Beat the egg yolks and slowly add 1/3 of the hot orange mixture to the eggs while continuing to beat. Return the yolk mixture to the orange mixture and heat, stirring constantly, until it comes to a gentle boil. Add the butter pieces, stirring until melted, then stir in the orange zest.

3Cover the surface with plastic and refrigerate for one hour before serving or pouring into a pie shell.

4If desired, store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Freeze for up to 2 months. Spread on scones or English muffins.
