Microwave Rhubarb Curd Recipe

Microwave Rhubarb Curd Recipe
One of the yummiest things you can make when rhubarb is in season is rhubarb curd. This buttery, tart, sweet concoction (similar to lemon curd) can be mixed with raspberries or strawberries to top cheesecake, stirred into no-bake pie fillings, used as a sauce over ice cream, or used as a filling for fruit tarts or cakes. Microwave Rhubarb Curd takes very little time to make.
This rhubarb curd keeps in the fridge for a couple of weeks if you don’t use it immediately. Incidentally, if you make English scones, and serve them at teatime, you’ll want to use it on them along with clotted cream. This rhubarb curd can also be frozen.
