1/1 Photo of Lime, Orange or Lemon Curd
Easy to make and so many uses, I like to mix a few tablespoons with some rum and drizzle that over coconut ice cream. Not to forget it is a nice gift.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Soften the limes by rolling them back and forth with your hands on the kitchen counter; you will get more juice out of them if you do this.
- 2Grate the zest very finely, take care that you dont grate the white pith.
- 3Squeeze the juice out of the fruit; you will need 150mL.
- 4Put the rind (zest), butter, sugar and juice in a heatproof basin.
- 5Stand this over a pan of boiling water and heat until the sugar and butter have melted.
- 6Lower the heat, you dont want the water to boil now.
- 7Whisk in the eggs, when incorporated use a wooden spoon and stir until the curd has thickened and coats the back of the spoon, 20 to 25 minutes.
- 8Pour into hot jars, when cool label them.
- 9Use this recipe also to make orange or lemon curd, just make sure you have 150mL juice Keep in the fridge.
