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

This lime curd would make a lovely breakfast treat served on a thick slice of homemade bread


  1. Whisk the lime juice and rind, sugar and butter together in a glass bowl over simmering water.
  2. Whisk the eggs and egg yolks together and add to the glass bowl. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens like custard.
  3. Pour into a sterilised jar while hot and seal. When it's cooled down, refrigerate and eat within two weeks.
