- 250 g sugar
- 90 g organic butter
- 3 organic eggs, lightly beaten
- ½ cup lime, orange, naartjie or grapefruit juice, or a combination thereof
- grated rind of any citrus fruit
- pinch of salt
Place all the ingredients in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir, using a wooden spoon, until thick – the mixture should coat the back of a spoon. Allow to cool.
Cook’s tip: Serve the curd in hollowed-out citrus halves that have been dipped in sugar and caramelised under the grill or with a blowtorch. Serve with fresh fruit or scones, or spread on toast.
