Total: 8 Hours, 15 Minutes


2/3 cup sugar
2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/3 cups orange juice
1 large egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons orange zest
Pinch of salt


1. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a 3-qt. saucepan; gradually whisk in orange juice. Whisk in egg. Bring to a boil; boil, whisking constantly, 3 to 4 minutes.

2. Remove from heat; whisk in butter, zest, and salt. Place heavy-duty plastic wrap directly on curd (to prevent a film from forming), and chill 8 hours. Store leftovers in refrigerator up to 3 days.
