Bergamot Curd

7 posts in this topic

Toots and I were talking earlier about bergamot, and the idea of bergamot curd crossed my mind. Has anyone ever made it? Any tips?

I found a couple of recipes on line, so I know it's been done.

I often add some bergamot to orange marmalade. Keep in mind that it is a very intense flavor, and straight bergamot curd might be no one's cup of tea. You might try a lemon or meyer lemon curd and add some bergamot juice to it. A little goes a long way, so start out carefully and if you want your next batch more bergamot-y add judiciously.

Good advice ... thanks!

Where does one obtain Bergamot oil, anyway? I've looked for it, but not found it locally....


I'm a lifelong professional chef. If that doesn't explain some of my mental and emotional quirks, maybe you should see a doctor, and have some of yours examined...

David, I know you can get it through DoTerra. They are a company that sells essential oils- they actually do say that you can ingest their oils, unlike most essential oil manufacturers. I have not ordered from them myself though.
