Best Strawberry Curd

Vanilla Bean Strawberry Curd

I love creamy desserts, so when I got my hands onto some unbelievably fresh and fragrant strawberries, I made Strawberry Curd with notes of fresh lemon and vanilla bean. You can eat this stuff by the spoon, I convinced myself that this is a creamy smoothie so I can justify just drinking this stuff all summer long.

I used to make lemon curd all the time, its perfect in summer desserts, but Strawberry Curd is a new obsession in my house. I can literally eat this curd on cream cheese bagels and call it a day. This curd is a must this season, you can put it on cakes, into frosting, you can serve it with toast, or as a dipping sauce with fruits. It tastes absolutely fabulous. Serve it with warm muffins or toast, the possibilities are endless! Creamy, with a gorgeous pink color from the fresh strawberries, with beautiful specs of vanilla bean seeds and just a touch of citrus to make the strawberry flavor shine.
