DIRECTIONS

  • In a Pyrex or heatproof bowl whisk the eggs very well.
  • Using a whisk stir together sugar, cornstarch and a pinch of salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan, the whisk in water, orange juice, lemon juice and zest until smooth; bring to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly.
  • Reduce heat and cook at just a bare simmer whisking constantly for about 2 minutes (the mixture will be thick).
  • Add in HALF of the hot juice mixture into the eggs in a slow stream, whisking continuously.
  • Whisk the egg mixture back into the juice mixture in the saucepan (this is called tempering) cook over medium-low heat whisking just until it reaches a boil.
  • Remove pan from heat and add in butter, mixing until melted.
  • Cover the surface with buttered piece of wax paper (butter side down) and chill until cold about 1 hour.
