Blueberry Curd

As I was browsing ideas to use up the last of our frozen blueberries, I was thinking about other fruit recipes that I’ve made and loved in the past. I was remembering how much I really enjoyed this raspberry curd and figured blueberry curd would also be awesome. So I hit up Google, and came across this recipe from Amanda at Fake Ginger.

I whipped up this curd and was shocked at how PURPLE it came out. You don’t normally see a whole lot of purple foods out there, so I was excited. The recipe made just one small jar of curd which had delicious blueberry taste.

Hubby and I were contemplating how to use up this little jar of Blueberry Curd and came up with a few ideas. I ate some spread on graham crackers with some buttercream that I had in the fridge.

Hubby on the other hand, spooned some over some vanilla ice cream. Be sure to check back later to see what I did with the rest of the curd.

Blueberry Curd

A great way to use blueberries

Yield: 1 cup

Ingredients:

1 cup blueberries
1 Tbsp water
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten

Directions:

Put blueberries and water in saucepan and cook over low heat until blueberries are very soft, about 10 minutes.

Press mixture through a fine mesh sieve and put liquid back into saucepan off of the heat. Stir everything together and cook on medium-low heat, stirring constantly until mixture is thickened, about 5 minutes. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools.

    These look great! I love cranberries too… I don’t love white chocolate by itself, but I think it would be great mixed in with all these other flavor!

    cranberries and white chocolate do compliment one another .. i make a muffin using the jordan marsh blueberry muffin recipe in which i substitute fresh or frozen cranberries for the blueberries and i add white chocolate morsels.
