Simple Berry Curd

Berry curd being poured into a white decorative bowl that sits on a white decorative plate with raspberries and white spoon.

I know people that don’t like chocolate, but I don’t know one person that does not like berries. So here I would like to introduce you to a Simple Berry Curd that I found in the journal of my friend blogger Yuliya. I’ve been looking at her beautiful pictures of different variations of this curd for a while, but at last I was able to do it myself.

I used her recipe as a base and adjusted it to my taste and to what I had available at the time.

    Hi Marina,
    I just made this and its cooling off. My question is: did you add butter to it like you would to lemon curd or is it supposed to be more “foamy”? thanks!
