fresh lime juice
This curd was absolutely delicious! To make it as a filling for Key Lime Cake, I substituted 1.5 Tbsp of lime juice for lemon juice and to make sure it would hold up as a thick filling, I sprinkled in one tsp. of flour while heating. Wonderful Recipe!
I did modify this one... 1 and 1/2 cup sugar same amount butter 1/2 cup fresh lime juice the zest of 3-4 limes 4 eggs. 1/8tsp salt. I blend it all together then heat over a low flame until thickened.
Very very good! I've been looking for a lime curd recipe and this one is definitely it! I love that it is so simple and made with things I already have at home. Highly recommended!
Really good! I used it as a topping for some mini-cheesecakes but I think I might make an entire pie out of it!
This is a great lime curd recipe (and I've tried a few). Many recipes call for egg yolks only, but this was smooth and just creamy enough. A little grated ginger adds a nice twist.
This was absolutely delicious and so easy! I needed some lime curd to add some pizazz to a key lime cake that I had made. I slathered in between two key lime cake rounds and then topped the whole thing with a sugary lime glaze. I love key lime pie and this is the next best thing if you can't have pie!
This was a super easy receipe. The taste was great. The only thing I did was pour thru a strainer after cooking. It gives it a more finished look!
This was great. I usually make lemon curd, but had a bowl full of key limes in the house. I had great success with putting my immersion blender into the eggs in a bowl prior to adding them to the lime juice mixture. No need to put through a sieve with this technique. I added one drop of green food color and this was perfection!
