Week 26 | 8.9.2010
A slight detour in my baking schedule and a very ripe mango led me to a pleasant discovery the other day. Mango & lime curd!
Fruit curds are pretty straightforward – eggs, fruit puree, some acid for flavor and to cut the sweetness, and finished with butter for creaminess. Simple but oh man, so tasty. Not to subject you too soon to yet another round of macarons (my discovery batch of curd ultimately wound up here), it’s back to tarts. Stay tuned.
Mangoes, limes, zest, eggs, sugar. Go! A lot of whisking while standing over a double boiler. Absolutely worth it – silky, smooth, tangy and sweet.
First batch of molds lined with cocoa dough.
More dough, more baking.
Tartlettes filled & topped with a dollop of unsweetened whipped cream. Enjoy!
