Mixed Citrus Curd
When spring time citrus arrives, there are all sorts of ways to enjoy it. This mixed citrus curd is a must make. Top it on pancakes or a dutch baby for a deliciously tart yet sweet breakfast or on top of this Spring Citrus Tart for an elegant brunch time dessert.
Mixed Citrus Curd
By Frances Kellar, Cooking with Our CSA
Makes 2 cups
Approximate time: 20 minutes
1/2 lb Sage Mountain Farm kumquats, zested & juiced
4 Sage Mountain Farm oranges, zested & juiced**
2 Sage Mountain Farm Meyer lemons, zested & juiced
1 cup granulated sugar (substitute with Sage Mountain Farm raw honey for healthier version)
2 eggs + 3 egg yolks
8 tablespoons unsalted grass-fed butter, divided
Pinch of kosher salt
**Note: You can substitute for blood oranges, which give a lovely color to the curd too! See image for what this curd looks like when blood oranges are used.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, and citrus zest and juice. Pour mixture into a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly until mixture is hot but not boiling. You will see foam as the curd cooks, this is okay. Once the foam dissipates, about 10 minutes, add in the stick of butter, one tablespoon at a time, until melted. Continue to stir curd until thickened, about 5 to 10 minutes more.
Cool completely before storing in an airtight container. The curd will keep in the fridge for up to four weeks.
This makes a lovely topping for this no bake citrus cheesecake tart, too.
