  1. Pomegranate curd

    I think the color will not be blanched too substantially, as I am replacing the butter with olive oil. I'll report back. In any case, the top will be garnished with the seeds themselves. The molasses idea is a good suggestion! Thanks!

    Same amount of sugar, too!
  3. Pomegranate curd

    Here is the idea for a pomegranate tart. To substitute the lemon juice for a lemon curd with 3/4 freshly squeezed pomegranate juice, 1/4 lemon juice, same amount of eggs, and instead of butter, olive oil, with a sheet of gel eat in thrown in for setting. How does that sound?

  7. Butter substitutes

    Yes, I was thinking of using olive oil. Would appreciate the recipe. Thanks! so, with the margarine, just substitute equal amounts for butter in the dough?
  8. Butter substitutes

    I am loathe to be asking this, but I've been summined to make two tarts without butter for a client. What might you suggest I use in place of butter for a pate sucree dough? And to emulsify a lemon curd? Thanks?
