As summer approaches there’s nothing better than the citrusy flavour of blood oranges, that tart flavour is gorgeously refreshing and beautiful on a summers evening. Here’s how:

What you need:
200g caster sugar
3 blood oranges, juiced and zested
3 blood oranges, sliced
1 tbs orange blossom water
2 free range eggs
6 egg yolks
200g butter
25cm blind baked short crust pastry tart(cheat and buy one from the supermarket or make your own)
1tbsp Demerara sugar

What you do:
1) Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
2) Whisk the sugar, juice, zest, orange blossom water, eggs and egg yolks until combined.
3) Add in the butter and let it simmer over a Bain-Marie.
4) Stir for 10-15 minutes until the mixture combines and thickens.
5) Port the mixture into the baked tart and cover with cling film to stop a skin from forming.
6) Once the tart is cool, arrange the sliced oranges over the top.
7) Sprinkle over the Demerara sugar, using a cooks blowtorch blaze the sugared oranges on the top to form a caramelised glaze.
8) Serve with double cream.

Enjoy and keep it delicious!
