Ingredients

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 3/4 Cups Berries I used a mixed frozen bag but fresh can also be used and any type of berry you prefer
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup plus up to 3 Tablespoons more
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Oil softened slightly

Instructions

INSTRUCTIONS

  • If using frozen berries, place the berries in a large glass bowl over a pot of simmering water (this is called a double boiler). Allow the berries to soften and then purree/mash (use the juice that forms as you defrost the berries).
  • Use a hand blender (or masher) and puree the mixture until smooth. It will be about 1 cup but a bit more or less is fine.
  • Whisk the eggs, egg yolks and maple syrup into the berry puree.
  • Place the bowl back over the saucepan of simmering water. Do not let the bottom of the bowl touch the water.
  • Once the mixture has started to warm, add the coconut oil 1 spoonful at a time. Whisk after each addition.Only add the next spoonful once the previous one has combined. Stir regularly.
  • This should take approximately 15 minutes. When done the mixture will be thickened and able to coat the back of the spoon.
  • Taste the Berry Curd. Depending on the tartness and tyoe of berries used it may require more sweetner. Add the Maple Syrup, 1 Tablespoon at a time, until the desired taste is reached.
  • Cool and place in a glass container. Store in the fridge.
  • This Berry Curd tastes awesome as it is or it can be used on scones, in macaroons or be used inplace of Lemon Curd in a pie or cake.
