Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

Spread it, cook it, lick it. This blood orange curd can be used in so many different ways and whilst the blood oranges are in season, it’s worth making the most of their sweet and colourful nature. They vary in colour dramatically from slightly redder oranges to dark purple, however this doesn’t show through in the end.
