I bought some pineapple mango juice by mistake (thought it was straight pineapple) and was staring at it, trying to figure out something clever to do with it.
I decided to make Pineapple Mango Curd out of it.
It tastes fantastic, and decadent, though each tablespoon has only about 30 calories.
And I have plans for it. Stay tuned.
*This makes quite a lot, so you can halve the recipe, easily. I'm giving some away.*
Pineapple Mango Curd
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cup pineapple juice
4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
6 large eggs
4 tablespoons butter
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a medium, heavy saucepan, stirring with a whisk.
Stir in juices and eggs; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk.
Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute or until thick, stirring constantly.
Remove from heat; add butter, stirring gently until butter melts.
Spoon mixture into a medium bowl; cool. Cover and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight (the mixture will thicken as it cools).
(I spooned directly into clean jars, to be kept in the refrigerator).
