Add a tropical touch to your favorite sweets with this homemade passion fruit curd! Tart passion fruit purée and rich egg yolks come together to make the perfect fruit curd.
Whole large eggs (yolks and whites) Large egg yolks Passion fruit purée White sugar Salted butter
Add eggs, passion fruit purée and sugar to a heat-resistant bowl and place over a pot of simmering water or a double boiler. Continuously whisk the mixture until it thickens.
The passion fruit curd is ready when it reaches a similar thickness to a hollandaise sauce. Turn off the heat and stir in the butter until it melts.
If desired, strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a wide, shallow bowl. This ensures you don't get any cooked bits and have a perfectly smooth curd, but it is an optional step.
Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd. This prevents a film from forming on top. Refrigerate for at least an hour and up to a week.
For the perfect tropical dessert, you will love this fresh passion fruit curd recipe. It’s sure to be a new summer favorite.
