My sous vide pomegranate curd recipe is cooked in mason jars.The sous vide will keep the ingredients at a constant temperature, cooking the curd smooth as silk.
Pomegranate Curd Ingredients:
- 10 Egg Yolks
- 1 Cup Pomegranate Juice
- 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
- 1 1/2 Sticks Butter, melted and cooled
Sous Vide Pomegranate Curd Instructions:
Separate 10 yolks from their whites.
Save the whites for another recipe.
In a food processor, blend the sugar until the sugar is a fine powder.
With the food processor running, pour in the 1 cup pomegranate juice.
Then, add the egg yolks, one at a time allowing each one to incorporate fully.
While the food processor is will running, pour the melted and cooled butter into the yolk/juice mixture.
Strain the mixture through a super fine mesh strainer to help remove any foam.
Fill half pint jelly jars with the pomegranate curd mixture.
If there is still a bit of foam or bubbles on the top of the curd, and it bothers you, firmly rap the jars on the counter to pop the bubbles.
Or you can use a kitchen torch to quickly remove them.
Neither of these options are necessary, it is more about getting a smooth texture from top to bottom.
Place a lid and ring on top of the jars.
Make them finger tight.
In a large stock pot, set your sous vide to 167 °F / 75 °C.
Once heated, carefully lower the jars into the water with a jar lifter.
Make sure there is water completely surrounding the jars.
Cook for 1 hour.
Carefully remove from the water and allow to rest to cool to room temperature and then store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
Seriously, the silkiest pomegranate curd! There was no need to pass this through a fine mesh strainer to get our any coagulated egg bits.
When the jars are first opened they might have a bit of foam on the top. This is not a big deal, do not be alarmed.
Simply give it a gentle stir and the foam incorporates into the rest of the curd.
Eat it off the spoon, pour into a tart shell, use it in the filling in macarons but enjoy and savor this sous vide pomegranate curd recipe.
