Blueberry Curd



OH my oh my do I looooove fruit curds of any kind.

This is so easy, so sweet and tasty... and SO purple.

Fill you cakes, cupcakes, tarts, spread it on a bagel with cream cheese... or just eat it plain.

It's amazing!

Blueberry Curd

Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1/4cup butter
2 cups frozen blueberries (which should reduce to 3/4 cup blueberry juice)
1 tbs of water
1 tsp lime zest
2 eggs, beaten 

Directions:

 In a sauce pan add 2 cups of berries with your water, cook on medium/low heat until the juice has released from the berries stir around and mash a bit. After about -10 minutes (after it has come to  a boil) remove from heat. 

Strain berries through a mesh strainer. Reserve juice and discard the pulpy berry leftovers. You should be left with 3/4 a cup of blueberry juice. If there is extra reserve for later use. (some berries are juicier than others and may produce more juice when cooked down!)

In a double boiler whisk eggs, sugar, zest, and blueberry juice together constantly.

Add 1 tbs of butter at a time waiting for each tbs to melt before adding the next.

After all the butter has been added and the curd starts to thicken so it coats the back of a spoon. Remove bowl from heat (if it seems at all lump you can pour it through a fine sieve again) and pour into a heat proof jar or dish.

Refrigerate up to 2 weeks.

  2. This is absolutely gorgeous, Carrie! What a great idea! I've made lemon curd before, but I've never branched out to other fruits. I'm sure it tastes fabulous!

  4. I had no idea you could curd other fruit (or, make nouns into verbs, apparently). This solves a major issue I've been having. My dad loves blackberry, but can't have the seeds. I'm totally making him this curd, but blackberry, for father's day!!

    1. This batch makes such a small amount I doubt you'd have allot left over unless you doubled or tripled the recipe. As for canning, this recipe will not can well. Though... you can freeze it!

  22. Do you have to use sugar? Would honey still work, or would the consistency be off?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Alexandra, I would not recommend using honey, it would most likely change the consistency. I have not tried making a fruit curd with it so I can not really say what your outcome would be.
