Wine Pairing for Satsuma Orange Curd


as recommended by Karen Bonarrigo

  • Satsuma oranges are sweet treats to put in stockings and beautiful citrus fruits to use in holiday recipes.
  • They have bright flavors to balance rich dishes and heavy ingredients, which creates a great juxtaposition at the table.
  • Orange curd is sweet but simple, both in preparation and in flavor weight.
  • It is a great option to jazz up a dish.
    • A dollop of satsuma orange curd makes a great topping for breakfast and brunch options (pancakes, waffles, crepes, biscuits) while family members are overnight guests during the holiday season.
    • It makes a great dessert accompaniment on ice cream, pies, cake, scones and tarts as part of your holiday spread.

Orange Muscat Mistella (zingy dessert wine to match sweetness levels)
