Cranberry orange curd! This delicious spread is made with freshly squeezed orange juice and raw cranberries. Enjoy with scones and buttermilk biscuits or pack up and give as gifts during the holidays!
We are at the tail end of the very short harvest season for fresh cranberries, so if you didn’t make cranberry sauce for your Thanksgiving feast there is still time to use up those seasonal berries with this curd recipe!
I absolutely love the rich tangy flavor of lemon curd on biscuits, cookies or right smack in the middle of thumbprint cookies and thought “hey, I bet cranberries would be another delicious base for curd!”
Cranberry Orange Curd make great gifts for the holiday season!
Tasty, festive and so pretty too! The berries started out ruby red, but once the butter and eggs are added it turns light pink in color.
I made two batches and packaged each little jar with a tea bag and knife spreader! These were gifts for my co-workers for all their support over the past eleven years.
I’m now two weeks into my new position and I’ve already had two potlucks! Phew, the transition has been seamless – haha!
Enjoy this seasonal curd in yogurt, oatmeal or package them up for hostess gifts during the holiday season!
Delicious Fresh Cranberry Orange Curd
- 2 cups cranberries, fresh
- 1/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
- 1 1/4 cup sweetener (I used a sugar alternative - Swerve)
- 1/2 cup butter, unsalted
- 5 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Pink and pretty and of course down right delicious. Sharing, of course!
This is so cute! I love it!
Hi there – was just wondering how long this would keep for? It looks so yummy, but I have to make my holiday gifts in advance and wouldn’t want it to spoil beforehand!
Hi Ana, This will be fine refrigerated for a couple of weeks. You can extend the life by trying a couple of preserving tips – I found some information here that you might find helpful.
I made some cranberry scones over the weekend, and I think this would be the perfect accompaniment.
Yum, that does sound like a wonderful duo 🙂
I have never heard of the before but it looks delicious. I am going to have to give it a try!
