Sweet, tart, and gorgeous in color, this summer-inspired rhubarb curd recipe is perfect for all kinds of breakfast and dessert dishes.
- 12 ounces fresh rhubarb, cut into 1-inch chunks (about 3 cups)
- ½ cup honey, divided
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 5 egg yolks, beaten
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into chunks
Combine rhubarb, ¼ cup honey, and lemon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until liquid starts to bubbly around the edges then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 10–15 minutes until rhubarb is completely soft, stirring occasionally. Uncover and cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Transfer rhubarb mixture to a blender and puree; return rhubarb puree to saucepan.
Whisk together remaining ¼ cup honey, egg yolks and egg until thoroughly combined; whisk into rhubarb mixture. Cook curd mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with rubber spatula, until mixture thickens slightly and registers 168°F on an instant-read thermometer, 5–8 minutes.
Off heat, whisk in butter until melted. Strain rhubarb curd through fine-mesh strainer into bowl.
Make it brighter in color:
If you want the color to be more vibrant and have a pinker hue, you can add 1 tablespoon ground freeze dried strawberries or raspberry powder. Whisk it in to the cooked and strained rhubarb curd.
