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.

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 friends at tea and I'll gift the second jar to the hostess. Read More

This is ok, but definitely needs more sugar. Texture is right; it’s smooth but very sour. Read More
