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’ve never had it in the restaurant, but it looked too good and unique to pass up.

      It was really good. I’m trying to come up with other ways to use it. It’s REALLY good on cheese or in a grilled cheese too.
