If you’ve never tried lemon curd, you’ve been missing out. My Pressure Cooker Meyer Lemon Cheesecake is one of my most popular recipe, as are my Lemon Bar Cookie Cups. I thought it would be fun to change up the lemon and make a raspberry curd.

Making Raspberry Curd in an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create this delicious Raspberry Curd!

Cooking the raspberries in the pressure cooker briefly softens the fruit making it easy to separate the juice from the seeds. I used a food mill to remove the seeds, but you could use a fine mesh strainer as well.

Using the saute function you can quickly thicken the raspberry curd right in the pot. You could also use Mary A Brecht’s popular technique and cook the curd in jars on a rack in the pot.

I swirled my Pressure Cooker Raspberry Curd into mini cheesecakes. (I’ll post that recipe on Barbara Bakes on Monday.) I also spread the raspberry curd on toast, and whole wheat waffles.

The recipe makes enough to fill three 8 ounce jars. I put two jars in the freezer to save for more fun desserts another day.
