Thank you so much for dropping in today..

It’s strange how today felt like a friday… did you feel it?

Yeah, It’s crazy. My brain’s probably not functioning that well.

I figured I needed a vitamin boost so I made this super delicious Calamansi Curd and really,

It tastes like sunshine in a jar

I just couldn’t stop eating it by the spoonfuls…

Of course, I want to share it with you…..c’mon get your own spoon,

Let’s sit down and pretend that we’re sitting right in front of a big Calamansi Tree in our Lola’s {grandma}backyard…

A calamansi tree full of fruit, waiting for us to pluck them from the tree….

There’s a gentle breeze blowing to the left, just enough to make the air around us smell citrusy….

Hmmmm…this is nice…

…and sweet.

Can we hang out here just a little more?

Thanks. I’m so glad you dropped by.
The Peach Kitchen's Calamansi Curd | www.thepeachkitchen.comCalamansi {or Calamondin or Philippine Lemon} is one of many ingredients I like to play with, specially during the Summer when it is abundant.. and CHEAP!

Remember my Calamansi Marmalade? I bet you do. Or if not, just give it a little click and it’ll take you there.

This is even better that that marmalade because you can eat this is as spread, dip or dessert. Your call.

I ate it as a snack…and as dessert..

Yup. Today is a Friday…

  3. this is interesting… never tried this before 🙂 would love to try this.

  4. this looks really nice. it makes sense that you can make curd from calamansi since you can make it from lemon, but I’ve never imagined somebody actually attempting it! 😀 congrats peachy!!!! 

  5. I have never seen this fruit before, but I do love all things citrus.  The different strains of that type of fruit is endless, I do not think I will ever be able to taste all of them in my lifetime!  Your curd does look amazing, now I will be on the lookout for this fruit.  Delicious post!

  6. I never seen this citrus, but would lobe to get some since I love lemon…the curd looks delicious, love the color of it as well.

  8. Wow! Thank you for this post! I’m a big fan of lemon curd and can’t get enough of it. Sometimes I just sit with a jar in front of me saying, ” just a teaspon…. hmmm one more teaspoon” oh I get what I’m getting at haha! Again thanks and I would live to use a lot of my leftover kalamansi.
    Keep inspired!

  9. Your photo of the Lemon Curd is just beautiful. It does look like a jar of sunshine and would be just delicious !
    Hope you have a wonderful week end and thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.

  10. Sunshine in a jar, that’s exactly what it looks like. So beautiful! Never heard of this citrus but would love to try it out. 

  11. Ack!  I neeeeeed some calamansi!  That sounds fantastic and it so pretty 🙂  I can’t totally see why you were shoveling it in by the spoonfuls…mmmmmm

  12. I had never heard of calamansi until now.  To me it looks like a lime on the outside, and a little less like a lime on the inside. I’m really curious as to its taste.  I’ll had to keep my eye out for them. Your curd looks absolutely delicious which makes me want to find these even more!

  13. I forgot the butter! Thank god I accidentally threw in a tbsp. worth of butter flavored um margarine! So yummy on top of pound cake 😀
    THANK YOU!!!

  14. Hello, I know this post is old, but I’m hoping the blog is still active! I’m hoping to recreate this recipe as part of a wedding gift– do you know if you can purchase calamansi in the US? I live Boston, MA and I don’t think I’ve ever seen them at the regular grocery store. Thanks for your help!

    1. Hi Chelsea, Thanks for the comment but I don’t know if you can purchase them there. Sorry! This would really make for a great gift!

  15. Heeeyyy! I didn’t know about this. I think my preschooler would love this. He would lick calamansi raw and never make a face, which is strange to me. hahaha. I will try this. I like how it’s simple to make!

  16. may i ask,how many days would it last? does it have to stay in the ref?thanks!!! 🙂
