Cranberry Curd

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Delicious over scones, oatmeal, or yogurt, this cranberry curd is a seasonal spin on traditional lemon curd. If you prefer a smoother texture, press the cranberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve after blending in the food processor. This makes enough to fill a pint jar."

  1. Place cranberries in a medium saucepan. Add water and sugar and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until cranberries have burst, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Pour cranberry mixture into a food processor or blender; blend until smooth, 10 to 20 seconds. Reserve 1/3 cup and return remaining cranberry mixture to the saucepan over low heat.
  3. Whisk egg yolks together in a small bowl. Slowly add reserved cranberry mixture, whisking constantly. Slowly whisk egg-cranberry mixture back into the saucepan and continue whisking until thickened and the curd coats the back of a metal spoon, about 5 minutes. Add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, whisking until melted and fully incorporated.
  4. Pour into a sterile jar and allow to cool. Curd keeps in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

I made this recipe just as written and is it luscious and beautiful. It was easy to follow and tastes even better than expected. I plan to use half to top some tea rolls I'll share with friend...
