Fruit Curd as a Learning Experience

We’re out of pie, but what to make? It’s too warm for sticky toffee pudding, and I have too much work to do to make anything really interesting. So I defaulted to lime curd tart. It’s quick and easy, I love it, and it won’t last long.

I’m also beginning to accept the fact that fruit curd is a learning experience. I thought I had this nailed down a long time ago, but the more I make (the more versions I try), the more I realize I don’t have a definitive recipe. I’ll just have to practice systematically until I come up with one. It’s a dirty, rotten job, but someone has to do it.

This weekend the weather will be in the 70s, so that might count as cool enough for sticky toffee pudding, so I might be making that tomorrow.

The 1847 sourdough starter is bubbling but not growing very much. I fed it today and tonight. We’ll see how that’s doing tomorrow.
