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.

    I love that you were able to make this without artificial flavour or colour! So many ‘strawberry’ baked goods don’t even have real strawberries in them… thanks for sharing!!

      I try my hardest to make pink foods without any artificial crap in them. I was excited to find this recipe for a strawberry treat with all real ingredients!

    These look absolutely delicious, saving for summer! I had pink recipe in mind, but things have been so crazy here too that I haven’t had a chance to make it 🙁 I haven’t even baked an apple pie yet! Hopefully next weekend…

      I completely understand! I didn’t get all of my pink recipes posted this month and I haven’t made anything apple yet this year!!
