Blackberry Curd

, , , , , ,

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,
  • tarts,
  • in crepes,
  • on ice cream and desserts,
  • on scones
  • or just as bread spread.
