    I had to cook the curd for an extra 8 mins at 80 degrees/speed 2 and then I just poured the leftover curd into 2 jars to use as spread on scones or toast.

    These didnt work for me? ;( I did try making them in cupcake trays rather than cups though and this may be why. They werent presentable to take to a BBQ that i had planned them for, but hubby and I indulged in them anyway and they did taste delicious!
