Plum & Rose Curd

 plum curd

This was a wonderful addition to the  Plum & White Tea Scones.  I loved the color!

It tasted remarkably like blueberry.  The next time I make it I plan on adding a litle lemon juice just to cut the sweetness a bit.  This would be an amazing filling for a sponge cake as well.  This is best microwaved, in  my opinion, because there is not enough liquid to keep it from scorching over direct heat.

Plum & Rose Curd 

1 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

1 cup pureed plum

1/2 tsp rose water

1/2 c unsalted butter

Mix sugar, plum, and egg yolks in a microwave safe bowl.   Microwave, stirring every minutes, until mixture coats a spoon.   Whisk in butter in small pieces.  Add rose water.  Chill.

Keep refrigerated.

About 1 cup

    double boiler would also be a good option for reducing scorching…
