Breaking News: Limes are tasty! Yeh, I don’t know what took me so long to figure this out either, but boy, this is my new favorite ingredient for 2020. So, of course, I had to figure out how to turn into something dessert-related. This lime curd would be perfect in a meringue topped pie, but I kept it more basic. In our house, we used it instead of syrup with waffles and as a dip for fruit and graham crackers.
- 1 cup sugar
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- ¾ cup fresh lime juice
- 1 tbsp lime zest
- 2 eggs beaten
- Set up a double boiler over medium-high heat. Place the sugar, butter, lime juice, lime zest in the top of the double boiler; stir until butter melts. Mix 2 tablespoons hot lime mixture into the eggs and stir to blend.
- Reduce heat to medium and slowly whisk egg mixture into the lime mixture. Cook over the double boiler until lime mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool slightly and before use. If not using immediately, keep in a glass container and refrigerate.
