Blueberry Curd

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.

Blueberry Curd

225 g Blueberries

50g butter

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.
