Rhubarb Curd is a silky sweet/tart spread with the unforgettable flavor of spring rhubarb. Spread it on toast, scones, biscuits, or just eat it out of the jar with a spoon!
Course: fruit preserve
13ounces365 g fresh trimmed rhubarb, cut in 1 inch pieces
juice of 1 lemon
4large eggs, well whisked
2Tbsproom temperature unsalted butter
1or 2 drops pink food coloring
Put the rhubarb and water in a high speed blender like a Vitamix, or a food processor and process until very smooth.
Press the puree through a fine mesh sieve so the rhubarb juice comes through, leaving the solids. Use the back of a spoon to as much through as you can. You'll need 1 cup of juice.
Put the juice into a saucepan and stir in the sugar and lemon juice. Add the whisked eggs and whisk everything together well.
Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring or whisking constantly, over medium to medium high heat. You can add a few drops of food coloring at this point if you need it.
Once the mixture comes to a boil it should be slightly thickened and should coat the back of a spoon (it will thicken more as it chills.) Remove from the heat and add the butter, a bit at a time, whisking in to melt each piece before adding the next.
Pour the curd through a mesh strainer to remove any bits of cook egg, then fill your jars. Let cool to room temperature before covering and refrigerating overnight.
Use the curd within 2 weeks.
