This is dedicated to Hannah at Wayfaring Chocolate, whose aversion to orange means that she won’t have to add this recipe to her to-bake list! Maybe I need to change my PhD project to investigate aversion to orange, since people such as Hannah who tragically don’t enjoy orange clearly need some sort of intervention, and I want to help these poor souls whose lives are devoid of the sublime orangey beauty that we more fortunate people have received into our hearts as the orangey glow of orangetastic salvation. Orange be with you.
Like my yuzu tart, this tart is made using the lemon tart recipe from Exclusively Food, although substituting in blood orange juice and adding the zest of a blood orange to the filling after straining it and before putting it into the pastry casing. I also grated rather a lot of chocolate over the top (Scharffen Berger 62% Cacao Semisweet, courtesy of Tash who brought it back from the U.S. for me, amongst other fantastic cacao-related products, since you can’t get Scharffen Berger anywhere that I know of in Australia – thanks, Tash!).
Receive this orange tart into your pie-ous hearts, heathens!
