This is the most amazing curd! I was a little sceptical when I first made it as I thought 40g of fresh ginger sounded a lot. Surprisingly though it was just perfect. I've made it heaps of times now and am rather guilty to admit that I've been known to grab a spoonful when I see the jar in the fridge quite a number of times!
Curd is just so easy to make in a Thermomix. Make sure you try out my Passionfruit Curd and my Lemon Curd recipes too.
Try it on waffles too next time you have them.

I replaced the butter with coconut oil as I am dairy free and it worked a treat.
That's fabulous for people to know, thank you so much!
Sooooo good! I doubled the recipe and cooked it for 12 + 1 minutes. I used a nut milk bag to extract the ginger juice and got enough for another double batch. Yum yum yum!
Thanks Bronwen, That sounds amazing and great value as well!
Has anyone tried making double quantities? How did you
Need to change the cooking time? My parents golden wedding this Saturday and I think I might make this to go with baked vanilla cheesecake
I haven't tried doubling it Simon - but I don't see why it wouldn't work. I would suggest for this recipe stick to the suggested cooking time and check it - it may need one or two mins more but I would check first. Happy Golden Wedding to your mum and dad! Certainly a milestone these days! :)
