If you’re a fan of lemon curd, I’m sure you’ll also love the delicious zesty-ness of lime curd too. As popular as lemon curd is with many people, myself included, sometimes it’s good to ring the changes.
How to make lime curd.
Lime curd is just as easy to make as lemon curd and needs only a few ingredients. It’s traditionally made over a bain marie (bowl suspended over a pan of water) which provides a gentle heat preventing the eggs from scrambling and spoiling the curd. Whether you’re making lemon curd, orange curd, or this refreshing lime curd, the mixture will need constant stirring once the eggs are added waiting for it to thicken. You will know when it’s ready when a line can be traced into the spoon and the curd no longer runs to fill the line.
Lime curd uses.
Lime curd can be used in the same way as lemon curd. As we know it’s really great spread onto a round of toast, but how about rolling some into a swiss roll, sandwiching some between macarons, layering some in a Victoria Sandwich cake, or even adding some to cupcakes for a secret filling like these Coconut & Lime Cupcakes. And with the school year about to finish soon it would also make a lovely edible gift for your child’s teacher when finished with a fabric lid and pretty ribbon.
So, here’s how to make homemade Lime Curd.
