Vegan raspberry curd

vegan raspberry curd

hello everyone i am facing a slight problem today it seems that the punctuation on my computer is not working too well whenever i try to make a capital letter or insert a comma or a period or something all i get is a blank space so im going to try my best to bring you a quality blog post today

i think that punctuation is not all too necessary anyway ive been reading some james joyce and it has really inspired me to try writing without it you know his book ulysses well there is a chapter i think wherein he refuses to use all punctuation the last 50 pages of the book are just a monologue without punctuation or anything not a single period so if a famous author like james can do it then why cant i do it

hmm are you trying to question my literary choices well you can go fuck yourself

okay lets talk about this raspberry curd its pretty delicious if i do say so myself

look at the pretty colors

i made this raspberry curd for a cake and used it as a filling it worked fabulously the raspberry puree added a nice color and flavor to the cake

obviously fresh raspberries are not available this time of year its too early for that but I did find some frozen raspberries and let them thaw for a half hour before pureeing them with the milk and water which gives you a pretty weird little mixture but once you mix it with the cornstarch sugar lemon zest and coconut oil it tastes pretty damn good

the lemon zest is absolutely necessary i think i didn’t even put enough of it in there the lemon adds a very nice tart flavor to the sweet raspberries

the recipe is based off of my favorite lemon curd recipe and its pretty easy so to be honest you have no excuse not to make this you can use it on toast in yogurt on ice cream in cakes as i did just spoon it into your mouth like a savage

all right im done talking here is the recipe
