Blueberry and Lemon Curd Almond Cups

C – I really couldn’t wait until Spring this year.

I was getting sick and tired of Winter. I wanted to be done with it. Just a few more weeks until Spring begins and I am itching to start cooking with Spring fruit. So, I started early. I know it’s not blueberry season yet … but, there was a really good sale.

Don’t get me wrong I love citrus. But, some of the citrus I have been buying are getting to be too ripe. They are a bit strong for my taste. I still love that I am getting lemons from my neighbors and friends.

Thank you to all the nice and generous people out there allowing me to use your lemons. They are great. I made lots of lemon curd from them. I hope everyone enjoyed it. Now, it’s time to use other fruit.

Fresh blueberries delighted my taste buds this morning. I couldn’t wait to put them in this dessert cup. Crunchy bits of almond with another appearance of that lovely lemon curd mixed with plump, juicy blueberries.

It was great. A burst of blueberry juice and a sweet, tart lemon curd made me feel there was going to be an end to Winter.

I think I might be jinxing myself making this dessert so early in the season. I may be predicting at least three more weeks of cold Winter.

  1. Really sad that none of the recipes can be printed out….makes the site kinda pointless, who wants to sit and write out everything..that said, love your stuff

    • Michele,

      Sorry for the inconvenience. We will work on a fix in the Easy Recipe plugin. Meanwhile, there are a couple of ways you can print right now.

      1) In Chrome or Firefox browsers, just print the whole page. In Windows, that is a Ctrl-P keyboard shortcut. I’m sure there is a Mac equivalent.

      2) In Chrome or Firefox browsers, select the just recipe area. Then, when you print, you can check “Selection Only” and it will print just the recipe.

      Hope this helps.
