Croissant Garland With Persimon Curd

Croissant Garland With Persimon Curd:

Makes 1 jar of curd

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 30-45 minutes

Persimon Curd:

2 Spanish persimons

2 egg yolks

25g caster sugar

25g butter, melted

Finely grated zest of 1 large lemon

To Serve:

6-12 fresh croissants

100g icing sugar

1-2tbsp lemon juice

A few glace cherries and rosemary sprigs

A little icing sugar

Slices of Spanish persimon

Croissant Garland With Persimon Curd Method:

1 Remove and discard the leafy tops from the Spanish persimons, then chop the fruit. Put into a saucepan with 250ml water and simmer for 20-25 minutes until soft. Puree with a hand-held stick blender, or in a blender. Cool for 10 minutes.

2 In a large heatproof bowl, whisk the egg yolks and caster sugar until combined, then stir in the persimon puree, melted butter and lemon zest.

3 Set the bowl over a large saucepan of gently simmering water and stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens – this will take 10-20 minutes. The mixture thickens more as it cools.

4 Pour into a sterilized jar and seal with the lid. Cool, then refrigerate and use within a week.

5 To serve, arrange the croissants in a circle, with a bowl of the persimon curd in the centre. Mix the icing sugar and lemon juice to make a thin icing. Drizzle over the croissants and decorate with glace cherries and rosemary sprigs dusted with icing sugar. Serve with slices of Spanish persimon.

Cook’s Tip: Serve the curd with warm scones, toast or soda bread for a yummy treat.
