Instant Pot Orange Pineapple Curd

If you read my blog at all, you know how versatile the Instant Pot can be.  It does it all - quick freezer meals, great broths and stocks, even delicious yogurt.  I have absolutely loved stretching its legs and really figuring out just how much I can make with one appliance.

One of my favorite (and really unexpected) discoveries with the Instant Pot has been its ability to make sweets.  I've tried lava cakes (so good), key lime pie (again, incredible...but I recommend doubling the amount of filling for this recipe), and now, different kinds of curd.

Curd sounds kind of gross, but it such a perfect topping for toast, yogurt, fruit, ice name it.  It's a sweet, fruity It can also be made with almost any combination of fruit imaginable.  I'm sure most of you have heard of lemon curd (but, like me, had probably never had it before this).  This is a new one for me, but I don't know that I can live without it now!
