Citrus curd tastes like summer on a cold winter day. The acidity from the citrus cuts through the richness of the eggs and butter. It's a perfectly balanced dessert, one of our favorites!
For the recipe:
- 3 eggs
- 150 grams sugar
- 180 grams of citrus juice (grapefruit, lemon, orange)
- zest from 1 lemon
- 200 grams of butter
- pinch of salt
Whisk together eggs and sugar.
Add the citrus juice and zest, place on top of double boiler and whisk continuously until the curd thickens, between 5 to 10 minutes.
Take off of heat and let cool down a bit before whisking in softened butter.
