  • 1/2 cup blackberry coulis
  • 1/4 cup maple sugar
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 3 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp tapioca
  • 2 tbsp butter

After Cooling

  • 1/8 cup blackberry coulis


  • Combine coulis with the maple sugar to allow the sweetness to infuse.
  • First, blend together blackberry mixture and eggs over a medium heat pan or double boiler.
  • Let sit over medium heat and constant stirring until it thickens approximately 10 minutes.
  • Finally, combine lemon juice and tapioca and stir together until combined.
  • Next, stir the tapioca mixture into the curd while stirring continuously until thickened.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Lastly, stir in the butter. 
  • Cover with plastic wrap pressing the wrap down on to the surface of the curd to prevent a skin from forming.

After Cooling The Curd:

  • After the curd has cooled for a minimum of one hour remove the plastic wrap and stir in coulis.
  • This is done to create a prettier color. (Since I don't use food colorings this is how I obtain a more vibrant color).
  • Next, place in sterilized jars or use right away.
  • Makes approximately 1 cup
