  • There’s nothing quite like the citrussy zing of homemade curd. Why not give your spread a litle twist with this lime version? It’s a little sweeter that the lemon version and tastes delicious either spread thickly on some hot toast or as the filling in a lemon sponge cake.


    • 5 limes
    • 100g sugar
    • 50g butter
    • 2 whole eggs
    • 1 egg yolk


    • Whisk the lime juice and rind, sugar and butter together in a glass bowl over simmering water.

    • Whisk the eggs and egg yolks together and add to the glass bowl. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens like custard.

    • Pour into a sterilised jar while hot and seal. When it’s cooled down, refrigerate and eat within two weeks.
