Blueberry Curd

Blueberry curd, like creamy pudding you can put on scones and more.

Have I mentioned lately how blueberries are my absolute favorite?

They are, and I’m so glad that they are in abundance,

years ago they were more difficult to find.

Except where I grew up, we would go to a local place that had acres and acres of blueberries,

We would buy 5 pound boxes of blueberries and oh what yummy things my mom would make with them.

I have thought about blueberry curd for some time now and can’t believe I haven’t made it sooner.

I’ve made many types of curd,

but today well today it’s all about the BLUEBERRY!

This magically delicious little fruit releases a really pretty PINK color.

The skin is the blue part, but the juice is a super pretty hot pink-reddish color. I love making Blueberry Basil Lemonade, it’s so pretty and makes lemonade so delicious. One look and you will want a cold glass full yourself!

Don’t laugh, you will do it too.

It’s that delicious.

    Someone mentioned orange curd today and I’d never had that and instantly I thought, I wonder if you could make blueberry curd since blueberries are my favorite. …and here you are. I love this.

    1. How funny! I think orange almond curd would be so yummy! We should have a curd party, and serve it with SPOONS ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Blueberry curd sounds wonderful! Forget syrups for topping pancakes, it’s all about jams and curds, and I love the idea of making a blueberry one! I’m going to have to pick up some jars and start creating my own curds. This one looks absolutely divine and I love your pictures ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. I didn’t measure it out before eating it and putting the rest in a jar. My best guess is between 8-10 oz. I do make it often and will update the info when I make it again.

    2. I hear curds freeze well. Just leave some space for expansion as all liquid items swell some when frozen, then thaw completely and serve (I’ve read that curds can be frozen up to a year) I myself haven’t had much reason to freeze any as it gets devoured fairly quickly and lasts over a week in the fridge.

  3. This is so good! Made to go between layers of a lemon cake for Easter tomorrow.๐Ÿ˜Š It’s hard to not find any reason to just eat it all now, though! Lol
