Grapefruit Curd


I’ve always loved lemon curd and when I found this recipe I knew I had to try it. This recipe is very simple and the jars, once labeled nicely could make a really great gift. This Christmas all my friends and family are getting home-made preserves, and grapefruit curd will definitely be under the Christmas tree.

Enjoy making this simple, sweet and also bitter curd. My favorite way of eating it is just on a piece of toast, but its incredible spread over a simple cheesecake.
