Servings: 4

 

Ingredients:

4 tablespoons butter

3 eggs

1 tiny drop Wilton Leaf Green food coloring gel (optional)

1/4 cup key lime juice, freshly squeezed

1 teaspoon key lime zest

3/4 cup sugar

Equipments:

sauce pan

whisk

toothpicks

sieve

Cooking instruction summary:

In a saucepan, whisk together the eggs and sugar until well combined. Whisk in the key lime juice, zest, and gel food coloring (I used the tiniest tip of a toothpick of gel, just to give the curd a subtle green tint. Completely optional. If you don't use, the curd will be a creamy yellow with flecks of green from the zest). Turn the heat on to medium low and stir the mixture briskly and constantly until warmed through. Add the butter a little at a time until it melts into the mixture and becomes smooth. Continue cooking and stirring until the curd begins to thicken and coat the spoon. Pour the curd through a fine mesh sieve to strain. Pour curd into a jar or other tightly sealed container and refrigerate up to two weeks. Spread onto scones or biscuits or use as a filling for desserts or donuts.
