Raspberry Curd – this is a relatively new addition to the repertoire having been asked for it a couple of times at events. I had not seen a recipe for it, or even seen it for sale before, so I when I saw jars of it being sold by English Heritage I had a taste and sneaky peek at the ingredients list on the back of the jar and had a good long think about it. I was wary of the curd separating, and didn’t want to use any thickening or setting agents like cornflour or pectin. I adapted the recipe I already used for the lime curd and made sure there was an extra yolk added as an emulsifier/binder.
It works perfectly I think! The resulting product is sweeter than lemon curd as, although raspberries can be sharp, our raspberries were very ripe when picked and frozen. The colour is a gorgeous pinky-purple, very girly, and it tastes fantastic!
The smoothness of curd with the taste of fresh raspberries, YUMMY!
Seville Orange Curd – BRAND NEW PRODUCT! This is SO delicious, semi-sweet, tangy, smooth, creamy ~ if you could team it up with dark chocolate somehow it would be even more divine! Maybe make a meringue pie but make a dark chocolate pastry, or put a layer of melted dark chocolate between the pastry and the curd, mmm-mmm-mmm! There will be limited stocks of this as the availability of the oranges wanes, so get yours NOW!
