This recipe makes about 2 1/2 cups, but you can easily double it. Simply allow more time for the curd to thicken.

  • Yield: Serves 20 (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
  • Hands-on:35 Minutes
  • Total:1 Hour, 35 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 (12-ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 large egg yolks

Preparation

1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes or until cranberries pop. Place cranberry mixture in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Strain cranberry mixture through a fine sieve over a bowl; discard solids.

2. Combine sugars and butter in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well combined. Add egg yolks and egg, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in cranberry mixture, cornstarch, and salt. Place mixture in the top of a double boiler.

Cover and refrigerate up to 1 week.
