PREP TIME

Directions
  1. In a large metal bowl, combine the whole eggs, egg yolks, sugar, SunkistĀ® lemon zest, freshly squeezed Sunkist lemon juice and Sunkist Moro blood orange juice. Whisk with a wire whisk.
  2. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, while making sure it does not touch it.
  3. Whisk continuously, for about 4 minutes until nicely thickened like a pie filling. Be careful not to let the mixture get too hot or it will get scrambled.

  5. Let cool to room temperature then cover and refrigerate until needed.
