Quick & Easy Orange Curd

You will need;
4 egg yolks
150g caster sugar
60g butter
Zest from 1 large orange
100ml fresh orange juice

This should make 1 x 1lb jar. Make sure the jar and lid is clean, dry and sterilised. Mix the sugar and egg yolks together using a hand whisk until well combined. Pour the mixture into a pan along with the rest of the ingredients. While stirring all the time, heat the curd mixture on a medium to low heat until it starts to bubble then take it off the heat. Leave it to stand for a few minutes before pouring into the jar then seal and leave to cool.This should keep for up to 3 weeks in the fridge. (If it lasts that long!!) Another recipe using this orange curd will be coming soon. Until then it can be enjoyed with ice cream, yoghurt or on toast for breakfast!
