I've seen Dreamers Loft lugging back yuzu fruit everytime she goes to Japan. Being curious about this fruit, I bought two from my recent trip to Tokyo. I've tried many yuzu flavoured drinks, desserts here, but have not actually seen this fruit. Now, I'm regretting not getting more of this!

I was wondering what to do with this fruit, baking chiffon with it seems a bit wasteful since I only have two, and my chiffon cakes are not perfect. Making jam might seemed too little. So when I saw Edith making Yuzu Curd, I decided curd it will be!

When I was making this curd, I realised that I could squeeze out more juice from my two yuzu fruit, therefore, I didn't use enough egg yolks to "curdle" it. Fortunately, after keeping it into the fridge, it wasn't too liquid. It was more gravy-like than curd-like after cooking. It was my oversight that I should have weigh the juice before starting on the egg yolks and sugar creaming. Nevertheless, it tasted good!
