Silicone Whisk
Infrared Surface Thermometer


  • cup Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Large Egg Yolks
  • 1 Large Egg
  • ½ cup Concord grape juice
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon Citric Acid
  • 6 tablespoon Salted Butter Chilled and cut into pieces.


  • In a small pot, whisk together egg yolks, large egg, and sugar until well combined. Add the grape juice and the citric acid, whisk until well combined.
  • Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens. It should be able to coat the back of a spoon and retain a clear trail when a finger is dragged across the back of the spoon. Ideally, you want the mixture to reach 165F - I use an infrared surface thermometer for this.
  • Once mixture is thick / hot enough, transfer to a bowl. Add the pieces of butter, whisking until well incorporated.
  • Once all of the butter has melted in and been fully incorporated into the curd, transfer grape curd to your storage container and chill for at least 1 hour before use.


This grape curd will last for 2 weeks in the fridge, or a few months in the freezer. (Thaw overnight in the fridge before use!)
