12 Tasty Fruit Curd Recipes From Blackberry to Watermelon

Fruit curd recipes are a dessert spread and topping usually made with citrus fruit, such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit or tangerine. They are smooth, sweet, pudding-like and intensely flavored. They can also be used as a topping, when it’s spooned over a slice of pound cake.

Other flavor variations of fruit curd recipes include passion fruit, mango, and berries such as raspberries, cranberries or blackberries.

The basic ingredients in a fruit curd recipe are beaten egg yolks, sugar, fruit juice, and zest, which are gently cooked together until thick and then allowed to cool, forming a soft, smooth, flavorful spread.

The fruit curd recipe was used to make a filling for cakes, tarts, and other pastries. Today it has become more widely used in an array of foods. Fruit curd recipes are a popular spread for toast, waffles, pancakes, and muffins as well.

Many non-lemon curds end up runny – they don’t set up properly, as they lack the acid level that lemons have. You need enough acid to react with the proteins in the egg yolks, to ensure a nice, thick product. I brought in additional acid in the form of citric acid.

11. Lemon Curd from Taste of Home

12 Tasty Fruit Curd Recipes

Lemon curd is a scrumptious spread for scones, biscuits or other baked goods. You can find it in larger grocery stores alongside the jams and jellies or with the baking supplies, but we like making this lemon curd recipe from scratch.

Homemade lemon curd will last in the refrigerator for 1-2 weeks. You can freeze lemon curd for up to a year in plastic freezer bags or mason jars.

Avoid using a copper or aluminum pan as those will react with the lemon juice and cause the discoloration in the lemon curd and could even cause a slightly metallic aftertaste.
