Raspberry Curd

Raspberry Curd

Raspberry Curd features the best of the season and is a great way use fresh raspberry juice.

As mentioned in the Raspberry Jelly post, 2020 was an incredible growing season in the Nutmeg Disrupted gardens. This is the first property I have lived on that has raspberry canes. It has been a wonderful experience learning about the berry.

If you grow raspberries or have considered it, do check out the post on How To Grow Raspberries, it is a crop worth investing in!

Like many on the prairies raspberries are a flavour that I grew up with and brings back a flood of memories.

This beautiful Raspberry Curd uses up the leftover juice from the stunning raspberry jelly we made earlier. Curds are perfect to use in tarts, as a filling in cakes and is perfect even enjoyed by the spoon!

If you are using the curd as a filling in a cake be sure to create a dam of icing around the perimeter of each layer. This makes a barrier to prevent the curd from seeping out from between the layers.

I have been a fan of curds and have tried a few different fruits with quite beautiful results. By far raspberry curd has quickly become a personal favourite!  I have a small collection of curds in the preserving section of the site.

I encourage you to try it with fruits that you love, I think you will find success with most any flavour.
