Bergamot Curd

Most people would probably recognise Bergamot as the distinctive flavour in Earl Grey tea but it is actually a citrus and most of the worlds supply comes from Calabria.


Flavour-wise I'd say that it is a bit closer to Meyer Lemon in its tartness but with a more interesting fragrance. Surprisingly, I found it wasn't as strong a flavour as you find in Earl Grey tea - so if you are one of those that dislike Earl Grey don't write off Bergamot until you try the fresh fruit.

As Shrove Tuesday is coming up, I needed something to serve with my pancakes and a curd is a quick and delicious way to fill that need.
