Blood Orange Curd Recipe

Blood Orange Curd


This is an awesome recipe to enjoy blood oranges during their short season! Use the curd with anything from puff pastry to yogurt or as a donut filling!


  • 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.
