Did anyone else out there spend two hours grocery shopping yesterday, only to discover when you got home that you probably need just one more thing for the holiday meal? Here’s hoping I am the only one who realized I need one more sweet to round out my Christmas morning. What’s a girl to do? Well, I pulled out this recipe from Jackson Whole Grocer I saved a few weeks ago and plan to whip up this winter citrus curd. Citrus curds made are wonderful fillings for cakes, toppings for tarts, or spreads for scones and toast. You can even make this quickly today and gift to guests in small jars tied with a ribbon.
Also originally from the South, Cara Rank discovered cooking was a creative outlet that helped her relax after long days writing magazine and newspaper articles during the past eight years in Jackson. Really, she just missed Southern food. A lot. During a 12-year career as a journalist, Cara has won numerous awards for her work and has written about everything from rodeo queens to Dolly Parton tomatoes. She spends her weekends making jars of pickles and jam and amazing dinners for friends. She loves shishito peppers, Chicago-style hot dogs and elderflower-spiked cocktails.
