Orange Curd

60g unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
finely grated zest of two oranges
2 egg yolks
1 whole egg
100 ml orange juice

In a small heavy bottomed saucepan melt the butter over very low heat. Meanwhile beat the eggs and sugar together until well combined but not foamy, add zest and juice and mix. Pour into pan and stir well, raise heat to medium and stir constantly until the foam dissipates and it thickens. This will take about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and continue to stir for a minute, pour into containers. Cover when cold and keep in the fridge.

You can also use tangelos or mandarins.

I've used orange juice & zest in place of lemon in the no-butter microwave lemon curd recipe I've been making for about 20 years - but found it quite bland/sweet, and in need of a little lemon juice to sharpen it.
