Recipe For Lemon Curd

I love curd, any flavour, and will have it in yoghurt for breakfast or with crumpets for afternoon tea. This is so easy to make and I have given a recipe for lemon curd but as you can see in the photograph below, I have made it with granadilla’s. I have been asked for this recipe twice in the past couple of days and it appears originally in Lavender & Lime.

All Rights Reserved:
Ingredients
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 125mls sugar - I used fructose
  • 125mls strained lemon juice
  • Zest of 2 lemons
  • 125g chilled unsalted butter
Method
  1. beat the eggs and egg yolks until frothy
  2. gradually beat in the sugar until thick and pale
  3. mix in the lemon juice and zest
  4. cook in a heavy saucepan over a low heat and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens and coats the back of the spoon
  5. remove from the heat and beat in the butter with the wooden spoon
  6. place into a sterilized glass jar and refrigerate
My Notes
Use unstrained granadilla pulp, strained lime, orange, or grapefruit juice – use the zest from the citrus fruit you choose.
Use within three months of making and within 2 weeks of opening

    1. If you sterilize your jars properly and seal the jar adequately you can keep it in the fridge for 3 months before opening and a week or two after opening.

  6. Delicious, delicious! I love the tangy taste of it. Never heard of granadillas though. Wiki tells me it’s passion fruit in S.Africa. Is that right? If so, I’m getting on a plane to taste some right away.

    2. Thank Wiki for that help! I always think of the passion flowers as the buds and the granadilla’s as the fruit 🙂
