When I first started experimenting with canning I asked everyone what there favorite jam or jelly was. The people pleaser inside of me was eager to make an impression. Naturally, I asked my mother. She was quick to let me know that her favorite flavor out of a jar was lemon curd. I was quick to learn that it is one of mine too.
Being in Texas we have the luxury of having some really great organic citrus grown in our backyard in McAllen, TX. G&S Grove, check them out. (Seriously, the best grapefruit I’ve ever had.) So why does delicious curd have to stop with lemons?
I heard through the grapefruit vine that a friend liked grapefruit curd, viola, it appeared! I had done a blend of grapefruit and orange, which was delightful! This holiday season, I will be introducing straight up orange curd! Yes, I certainly tried my darn-dest not to eat it all before canning it up!
I will have these little babies available at the Holiday Handmade Show at OPA! this Saturday! See you there!
