Directions

  1. Beat eggs, yolks and sugar in a wide, shallow saucepan until smooth.
  2. Add butter, orange juice and zest.
  3. Place over low heat, and stir constantly until butter has melted and mixture has thickened.
  4. (If mixture begins to curdle, place bottom of pan in cold water, and beat vigorously.) Remove thickened curd from heat, and pour through a fine strainer into a bowl.
  5. Set aside to cool.
  6. Note: A substitute for Seville orange juice may be made by combining 2 parts orange juice to 1 part lime juice.

Delicious! Buttery and rich with orange flavor (being an orange fan, this makes me verrrry happy!) Since there are only 2 of us I halved the recipe (didn't know how long it would keep) and served it on English muffins. I quickly discovered that there's no need for extra butter on the muffin since this almost melts right on the hot bread ... mmmmmmm! At one point early in the recipe I didn't think it was going to work for me but I went by the cook time, and sure enough, in 15 minutes all was well and perfect. Thanks for a great orange recipe, Mean!
