This Blood Orange Curd is a creamy pink treat perfect for filling pies, cakes and a variety of other desserts. And it is so easy to make at home.
Many curd recipes call for egg yolks only, but I stole a page from Ina Garten and used whole eggs. Not that separating eggs is hard, but one less step is always a bonus.
You can make this with other citrus fruit, but you may want to increase the sugar a bit. Blood oranges are one of the sweetest oranges so I didn't need as much sugar as you would with lemon.

- 2-3 blood oranges

- Add the sugar and pulse again until the zest and sugar are mixed together.
- Add the butter and pulse to combine. Add the eggs, 1 at a time

- Cook over low heat until thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
