Tart Cherry & Pomegranate Curd

Tart Cherry & Pomegranate Curd

I was recently sent two bottles of R.W. Knudsen Family Just JuiceJust Tart Cherry and Just Pomegranate. I have been a fan of R.W. Knudsen Family juices since I first tried them years ago. Their juices are always delicious, have no preservatives, no artificial flavors, and they are a part of the Non-GMO project, which I love! The two juices they sent me are 100% pure juice with no sweeteners added. My kids tried both juices, and although they love very sweet things, they both thought this juice was tart, tasty, and refreshing. I loved how intense the fruit flavors are in each juice and couldn’t wait to make a recipe using them.

Tart Cherry & Pomegranate Curd

We just ran out of lemon curd, and since my kids love it, I decided to make some curd using the tart cherry juice along with a bit of the pomegranate juice. I added a touch of natural food coloring to brighten up the red a bit. You can use regular red food coloring if you desire or leave the curd as is. My kids both loved this tart cherry and pomegranate curd… it was sweet, tart, and super flavorful. I like to serve curd slathered on toast, waffles, pancakes, or crepes and drizzled on ice cream.

How to Make a Tart Cherry & Pomegranate Curd

Combine the zest of 1 lemon and the white sugar together with your fingers until it’s well combined and the sugar is fragrant. Set aside.

Cream the butter with a hand mixer until creamy and smooth. Add the fragrant sugar and blend until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix thoroughly. Add the Just Tart Cherry Juice, Just Pomegranate Juice, lemon juice, and salt then blend until well combined.

Pour into a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring often, until thickened, about 10 minutes at about 170 degrees. Remove from heat and let cool before pouring it into a container. Side Note: If you accidentally overcook the sauce, it may curdle a bit. Simply pour through the fine mesh strainer to remove any clumps. Serve over crepes, pancakes & waffles, toast, ice cream, muffins, or sugar cookies. Store, well-sealed, in the refrigerator. Enjoy.

  1. I really like Knudsen juice. I use their cranberry juice to make cranberry water for my “long life cocktail,” which is a fiber drink.

  2. I actually love the R.W. Knudsen juice brand, I just brought some of their sparkling apple cider and spice apple cider it was very good!

  3. You had me when I saw cherry and pomegranate. I have pomegranate seeds whenever I can get them and I love love the juice and I love cherries. I have not tried tart cherry juice though. Sounds soothing.

  4. I have never tried any of the R W Knudsen juices, but have read many good reviews on them and would love to try them.

  5. In order to make a holiday drink Bev and I went to several stores and never did find plain pomegranate juice – guess we weren’t looking for this brand.

  6. Love Knudsen juice… I had their cranberry over Christmas mixed with some champagne for cranberry champagne cocktails!

  7. Wow – I need to pay more attention at the store! I had no idea about these juices. Definitely need to give them a try.

  8. Sounds delicious. So does the curd recipe. Never thought about using any juice other than citrus for curd. Will definitely give this a try when making my next batch of tarts. Thanks for the suggestion.
