Original recipe from ABC Delicious magazine. I found the online recipe here, at taste.com.au it makes approx 1.5 cups of delicious lime curd, ready for your spoon…
Time: 20 mins or so
2 eggs +2 egg yolks
3/4 cup caster sugar
1/3 cup chilled butter (I’ve used salted because I like to balance the sweetness)
Zest + juice of 2 limes
Add the whole eggs, yolks and sugar into a large saucepan.
Whisk the mixture until smooth, then place pan over a low heat.
Add the butter, juice and zest and whisk slowly, (cause we don’t want to scramble those eggs!)
Keep whisking until the curd comes together like so,
Finally, you have the option to strain the curd or not (as I’ve chosen too). Lime curd should keep up to two weeks in the fridge…if you can hold out that long…
