My easy apple curd is delightfully rich, full of flavor from cinnamon and sweet apples, and it's wonderful in so many desserts! Making a cinnamon apple curd is as simple as mixing a few basic ingredients on the stovetop, though it tastes anything but basic!
1 lb apples (4-5 medium apples)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoon water
3 tablespoon butter
1 large egg
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Prep the apples. Start by peeling, coring, and dicing 1 pound of apples. Add them to a large saucepan with 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
Cook with water. Pour 2 tablespoons of water in with the apples and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once you have a few bubbles, reduce the heat to low and allow the apples to simmer for 20 to 30 minutes or until tender.
Cool the apples. When the apples are fully cooked and tender, mash or puree them until smooth. For a more textured curd, mash the apples by hand. And for a smoother texture, puree them in a food processor.
Add remaining ingredients. Pour the puree back into the saucepan and add 3 tablespoons butter, 1 whisked egg, and ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Mix well and cook over low heat, stirring frequently. Don’t turn up the heat, or the egg will scramble.
Cool and store. Once the mixture is thick, strain it to remove any lumps. Allow the curd to cool completely before storing.
