    Strawberry curd

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus cooling and chilling time
    • Cooking time: 35-40 minutes
    • Total time: 45-50 minutes plus cooling and chilling time

    Makes: 2 x 350ml Jars


    400g pack essential Waitrose Strawberries, hulled and any large berries halved
    1½ tbsp Teisseire Sirop Grenadine
    1 tsp lemon juice
    100g caster sugar
    125g unsalted butter, cubed
    4 Large British Blacktail Free Range Eggs, beaten


    1. Place the strawberries in a medium pan with the grenadine, lemon juice and 1 tbsp cold water. Bring to the boil over a high heat then cover, reduce to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.

    2. Press the cooled strawberries and any cooking liquid through a sieve into a large heatproof bowl. Add the sugar, butter and eggs. Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water, making sure that the bowl doesn’t touch the water. Cook, stirring very often, for 30–35 minutes, until thickened and the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon.

    3. Pour through a sieve into warmed sterilised jars. Allow to cool completely while covered with a tea towel, before topping with a waxed disc, sealing and storing for up to 2 months in the fridge. Or serve with warmed Duchy Originals From Waitrose Organic All Butter Scones.
