Rutger van den Broek shares his favorite baking recipes on his baking blo RutgerBakt.nl . We can share a delicious recipe from him every month. This time: this is how you make your own orange curd!
- 100 ml fresh orange juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- The zest of 1.5 orange
- 5 egg yolks
- 125 grams of granulated sugar
- 100 grams of butter, at room temperature
Place the orange juice, lemon juice, orange zest, egg yolks and sugar in a saucepan and stir well. Place the pan over low heat and heat the mixture, stirring, until it starts to thicken. A curd is ready at about 80 ᵒC, the egg yolks then create a binding that makes the curd thicker.
To check if it’s good, dip a spatula in the mixture and draw a line over it with your finger; if the curd stops running, it’s good. It is very important that you do not let the mixture boil, then you will get a piece of congealed egg and you do not want that.
Remove the orange curd from the heat when it is thick enough and pass it through a sieve. Stir in the butter and then let the orange curd cool. Keep it in the fridge.
