Lime curd

lime curd w letteringA few weeks ago, I made this delicious lime curd for a tart recipe which I’ll share very soon. But first i wanted to share the curd recipe, which is very very simple. Here we go!

Gather

curd ingredients

 The whites will be used for the tart meringue, you can save them in the fridge for 1 or 2 days. 

zest + sugar

 This will help the oils from the zest break free and go into the sugar. Now let’s make the mix! Add the following ingredients and whisk them in. Keep the double boiler at a simmer, enough to make the bowl hot but not overboil. You don’t want your eggs to cook to a scramble!

 You now have all the ingredients in the mix! It’s time to just wait for the curd.. 

 

finish curd

 Put it in a jar, in the fridge and store for up to 2 weeks. You can add the curd to tarts, cookies, cakes, toast… but, our lime curd tarts are coming up soon!!!
