What’s up with Curd?

In a search for inspiration, I went to Pinterest to see what was trending… curd recipes, apparently. Raspberry, lemon, strawberry, cranberry, pineapple, orange, the list goes on and on of curd recipes you can find.

I haven’t made or tried curd before, so as any person on the internet would do I asked Google and found other blogs. Like this one, by Cooking Light, that lists 12 uses for curd. Very helpful, thank you!

To my delight, I found I now have an inch to explore making curd and some other recipes. We’ll see if I take action on that or not. Let me know in the comments if you are for a blog post on a curd kitchen adventure.

A few of the uses I found most appealing:

  1. __Insert fruit of choice__ curd tart
  2. Pancakes with a curd and fruit topping
  3. Roasted chicken with lemon curd
  4. Curd mixed in with your morning bowl of oatmeal

Now regarding the fourth one, I have yet to find a combination of topping to make oatmeal taste good, but I haven’t tried curd. So maybe I should give it a run for its money and see if I’ll finally find my oatmeal magic combo.

    I don’t know much about curd, but try oatmeal cooked with some frozen fruit like blueberries and raspberries that mix in easily after all have been cooked together. I even need to add sugar.

      So the hot oatmeal warms up the frozen fruit to blend it into a nice warm breakfast?
