Lemon Curd is a long time on my to-do-list, but I did’nt get do it till now. Since I had some blackberries, I decided to make Blackberry Curd.
The result is a very creamy, silky and smooth “spread”.
It tastes fruity, slightly sour and not too sweet. And the great colour…..!
This curd is really easy and fast to do. Stored in the fridge it lasts 2 weeks.
You can use this Blackberry Curd for:
- cake fillings,
- in crepes,
- on ice cream and desserts,
- on scones
- or just as bread spread.
- 280 g blackberries (fresh or frozen)
- juice of half a lemon
- 100 g sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 egg yolks
- 50 g butter
Bring blackberries and lemon juice to boil.
Crush blackberries with fork or masher. Let it boil till juicy.
Sieve blackberry juice in a pot.
Add sugar to blackberry juice and bring to boil.
Mix the egg and egg yolks in a separate bowl.
Pour blackberry juice slowly to the eggs while whisking.
Pour mixture back in the pot and heat on small fire for about 5 minutes until it thickens.
Stir in pieces of butter.
Fill the hot Blackberry Curd in a clean jar.
Stored in fridge lasts about 2 weeks.
