Delicious Lime Curd
Ingredients
3 eggs
165g caster sugar
80ml lime juice
150g butter
2 teaspoons finely grated lime rind.
Preparation
Place eggs, sugar and lime juice into the bowl. Cook at 80 degrees, speed 2,for about 3 minutes.
If not thickened, add a little more time.
Add in butter, a lump at a time while keeping at 80 degrees, speed 2.
Continue until all the butter has melted, and the mixture is smooth.
Remove from bowl and place in a container, cover with glad wrap, pressing it down onto the surface to prevent a skin forming.
Leave for 6 hours or overnight.
Stir in rind and bottle.

I don't like citrus butters or curds a lot, but I found this delicious.
The recipe is converted from one I found in a cake book.

May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Didn't know you don't like Butter/Curds much Cookie.This must be good if it got past your taste buds ;)

I'm not a big fan of lemon things Denise. I even licked the spoon after taking the photo!!
