I love homemade lemon curd and last year I made Seville Orange Curd and that was delicious. In the spirit of challenging myself in the kitchen I made Blueberry Curd last week for my Easter visitors.
225 g Blueberries
225g caster sugar
3 eggs beaten
Place blueberries and 1tbsp of water in a pan, cover and cook gently until soft.
Sieve and return to the pan with butter and sugar to dissolve.
Add the eggs and heat gently , stirring until thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
Strain and cover into jars.
Mine tasted lovely, but was a bit runny, the eggs may have been too big, I used large ones? I cooked it for 20 minutes which is how long I would cook lemon curd.
I also made my first ever Simnel cake and am rather pleased with how it turned out.
And those all time favourites with children
Hope you had a lovely Easter. The family have all gone home now and it is very quiet here! ….
