      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1) Cut washed rhubarb in 2 cm pieces. Leave the skin on, since it will add the sweet pink colour to the curd.

    2) Rhubarb, strawberries, water and lemon juice into , 10 sek/speed 4, then for 10 min / 95 degree / speed 1 with MC on. Scrape down sides and puree 30 30 sek/speed 9.

    3) Add sugar and vanilla essence, 10 sek / speed 5.

    4) Add eggs and yolks. Take the 2 tablespoons water into the MC, add the cornstarch and smooth into the water. Put the starchy water into and cook 20 min/90 degree/speed 2-3 WITHOUT MC to thicken the mass.

    5) Add butter and 20 sek/speed 5 to incorporate.

    6) Put the curd into sterilized jars (e.g. 2 jars of 250ml), let cool and preserve in the fridge. It will be more liquid during the first 3-4 hours and set after a night in the fridge. The curd will keep for about a fortnight in the fridge.

    I made this today for the first time and am totally addicted. Had it in mini pastry cases with Blueberries on top. I'm having it with ice cream for dessert. A definite keeper but less sugar next time.

    Great way to use that rhubarb growing in the garden. I use it on meringue nests with whipped cream on top! Yum!
