Winner, Loser or Meh
The flavor was mild, light, barely present orange. I doubt this would happen with an orange like a Valencia. Mandarin oranges are very mild as it is. It also curdled slightly (see photo and edges of the Pyrex) so the instructions to whisk once after an hour will need to be modified and it should be whisked every 15 minutes. Uncle Meat & Potatoes liked this better than the Lemon Curd, claiming it was less sweet. It had the exact same amount of sugar as the Lemon Curd, so I am not sure what he was tasting. The rest of us like the Lemon Curd best. This experiment needs work.
I used a 5 1/2-6 quart crock for this
- Juice and zest of 4 Mandarin oranges
- 1 cup sugar
- 8 Tbls butter
- 4 eggs
