Strawberry Curd & Pancakes

Strawberry Curd & Pancakes
Saturday started off on a rather sweet not :) For people who routinely eat cereal or toast with PB this was my special weekend treat!
The part that I was most involved in while we made the Best Yellow Layer Cake in Anita’s kitchen was stirring the mango curd until it thickened. I kinda understood the curd process and the ingredients that went into it. I was eager to try it out by myself before I totally forgot!
Children particularly enjoyed the curd overflow and drip from the pancakes :) and btw, these are wholegrain buttermilk pancakes from Trader Joes  and I did not use the egg the recipe on the box suggested and it turned out absolutely fine!
Here are the ingredients required
1 lb strawberry hulled and halved
3/5 ounces of white granulated sugar
1/2 stick of salted butter
2 large eggs beaten
Follow instructions given in Mango Curd recipe for preparation

Taking all the tips she had given us when making the mango curd into consideration, I ventured into making some strawberry curd for the family – Harris Teeter had a buy one get 2 free deal and that was a sweet – so I bought the three – and they pretty well took up half a shelf in my fridge. I did not have the eggs required to replicate the exact same recipe as the mango curd… so I got a recipe from About.com  (the first site that comes up when you search for strawberry Curd, entered by an Aussie lassie)- which used just two eggs which I did have – and I was thinking hmm…maybe worth a shot.
One thing is for sure folks, your arms sure get a pretty darned good workout- like when you make Theratipaal the original way – not the microwave short cut which I am NOT a fan of. I added several new words to my vocab from this experience – For instance, I learned what “hulling” a strawberry means; And, what a slotted spoon is -hey, I had no idea never called it that!
