Lemon Curd with Blueberries

Homemade lemon curd is the best…tangy and yet sweet…creamy and silky…and together with fresh blueberries is just heaven on earth.

After eating lemon curd by the spoons and mixed with homemade yogurt I decided to add some fresh fruit with it…and what is the match in heaven with lemon curd? Fresh blueberries…I made them into small serving portions, but if you like you can make it into large portion…

There is really no recipe…just crumbled a few biscuits, such as almond biscotti or graham crackers and place on the bottom of the little glass, fill with a mix of lemon curd and add as much blueberries you can fit in it…
