For the Mom with a Sweet Tooth: DIY Citrus Curd

WP DIY Lemon Curd with WP Eggs, Butter and Sugar FINAL

DIY Citrus Curd

Ingredients

  • 1 cup citrus juice, such as lemon, lime, grapefruit or blood orange
  • Zest from one of the same fruit as the juice
  • 1 Wholesome Pantry large egg plus 2 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup Wholesome Pantry Organic Cane sugar
  • ¼ cup Wholesome Pantry unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. Heat juice in a pan over medium heat until it has reduced to ¾ cup. Set aside and let cool to room temperature and whisk in zest.
  2. In another bowl, combine egg, egg yolks and sugar and whisk until well combined. Quickly whisk cooled juice into this bowl, whisking swiftly and consistently to avoid cooking any egg yolks.
  3. Make sure you have a clean bowl set aside with a strainer set atop it before returning this mixture to the pan and heating again over medium heat.
  4. Stir the mixture gently but constantly to keep the eggs from cooking; keep stirring until the mixture thickens and looks like pudding (about 8 minutes).
  5. Pour mixture into bowl with strainer (this removes any cooked egg or odd bits). Whisk in butter, a few tablespoons at a time, stirring until butter has fully incorporated into curd before adding more. Pour curd into an airtight container and chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
