DIY Key Lime Curd

We are so glad we discovered "Key" limes here in Asia. They have such a wonderful flavor and we've been enjoying trying to incorporate that flavor into lots of new recipes.

This Key lime curd is so good on just about any everyday bakery product  and in special desserts. If you ever need to have a tea party that feels formal just set out lemon or lime curd, whip cream, and maybe some other sort of fruit jam to go with basic scones and everyone will ask out how you got so good at throwing tea parties.

Homemade Key Lime Curd Recipe

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup fresh Key lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp freshly grated key line zest
  • 1/4 cup  butter cubed
  1. Combine eggs and sugar in a sauce pan or double boiler. Then stir in lime juice and  zest.
  2. Simmer in a double boiler for 10–15 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Pour through a strainer to remove any egg white particles if necessary/desired.
  4. Add cubed butter and stir until melted and well incorporated.
  5. Allow to cool; the curd will continue to thicken. Spread on a cooled cake, muffins, or enjoy on scones or toast.
