Homemade Clementine and Lemon Curd. A great hostess gift - The Smoothie Lover

When I had my friends from ballet over just before christmas I got this little lovely jar of clementine and lemon curd. Sweet Julie had made it herself.

It is so nice – in this group of friends (we are just 5 girls) we have started giving each other hostess gifts. It is not a rule and you aren’t committed to give a gift. It is just something we do if we’ve just made something or found something which we think could make a good gift. So nice. And very “cozy” as you would say in Denmark.

This curd tastes so good. Luckily Julie had tied a little paper with the ingredients to the jar, so I could make it myself. That is definitely gonna happen!

I also got two other lovely hostess gifts: A big cookie cutter with the shape of a ginger-woman and a big cute christmas stocking totally filled with delicious chocolates. It is so sweet of the girls. Thank you!

I know curd is supposed to go on bread, but I’m weird and love it on my yoghurt (is is quite runny). Seriously my new addiction is greek yoghurt with this lemon curd and the nut and fig granola, I made this week. SO good! Try it!

Here’s Julie’s recipe on clementine and lemin curd.

Enjoy!

  4. Wow!! Seriously Josefine, you are so adorable!! This looks delicious and that is so sweet of you and your friends! Also, just curious but what does “cozy” mean? I’ve heard it’s a Denmark thing and it seems so sweet! But I am unsure of the meaning!

    I love curd on yogurt as well… much better than on my toast, actually! I’ve never made clementine curd, but it sounds super nice ; ) I love the photos and the presentation… everything’s lovely!
    Hope you had such a wonderful Holiday my friend! xxxxx
