Earlier in the month I was reading Oh Yes I Can's blog entry on Lemon Curd- found here. I almost forgot to make this month's challenge for Tigress's Can Jam...that would be bad to miss the first month.
So this morning I decided to make it but I had no lemons *insert sad face* . But I had oranges and orange juice *insert happy face* so with a few changes, I made orange curd- which was very yummy indead-especially since we had leftover scones from breakfast yesterday morning.
So the recipe I used is as follows
Orange Curd 3 large eggs 1/3 c orange juice 3/4c sugar 1TBS orange zest ( I used 2 oranges) 4 TBS unsalted butter ( I used salted because that's all I had)
Sterilize 3 4oz jelly jars and lids.
Mix eggs- oj and sugar together in a double boiler over simmering water stirring constantly until thickened- 6-10 minutes. Remove from heat and add zest and butter. Stir until butter is melted. I didn't strain it as I wanted to keep the pretty pieces of zest.
Pour into 3 4oz jelly jars- process 15 minutes -
What didn't fit in the jars was enjoyed with the leftover scones
