Cooking Instructions

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.
