Clementine & Cranberry curd
I bought a jar of Clementine & Cranberry curd when I was visiting London a couple of years ago. I loved the buttery smooth curd, but I haven’t seen the product back home in Sweden. That’s why I have tried to make my own curd in the Instant Pot.
Super easy NO jar method! The velvety and intensely complex sweet & tart flavors is refreshing and irresistible! You can use it for topping, spread, flavoring, or filling.
- Try it with cheesecake
- Spread over toast, scones, bread and waffles.
- Flavour your home-made yogurt
- Use it as filling for cakes and pies
Great DIY Thanksgiving / Christmas Gift!
The Instant Pot Pressure Cooker is great for curd, because it’s easy and no need to watch the pot on the stove with constant stirring!
Chill in the fridge for at least 4 hours before serving. The curd will thicken as it cools and chilled in the fridge.
