Citrus Curd

Makes 2 large jars
by Tenina Holder

Based on my penchant for all things lemon, this was an attempt to branch out to some of my other faves; citrus in general. I had a bowl full of tangelos, oranges, limes and lemons, just begging to show up in a stunning recipe. I also was sent some really cute stickers from SuperKitchen Machine friend Helene, and I had to use them on here…she sells them, so go get immediately, in time for gifting this Christmas!

I subsequently used this curd through some whipped cream and drizzled on top of a sponge sandwich...gave a couple of jars away and of course slathered the rest on brioche toast...another fave. Is it any wonder I resemble the cuddly 50's housewife? Give me an apron and a day in the kitchen, Happy. As. Larry. Whoever Larry is!

This makes a great tart filling, make a quick vanilla bean pastry, blind bake mini tartlets, and just before serving, dollop in cold citrus curd. Stir through whipped cream, fresh raspberries and cubes of sponge cake for a quick dessert, serve over vanilla ice cream as an elegant topping or as mentioned, it is fantastic on brioche toast, French toast or even brioche French toast....can you imagine?
