Límon Curd

Well.  That month went fast!  And while there is lots to fill you in on, I thought I would share one of our new favorite recipes!

Límon Curd.  Yes friends, we are approaching the apex of citrus season here and there are all sorts and colors of citrus at our fería each week.

I stole this recipe from a friend here and it was tart and wonderful and oh so easy to make!

So if you find yourself with 4 limes, or lemons, or límons or key limes, give this one a try!

Límon Curd
 4 límons (or lemons or limes), zest and juice
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
pinch salt
5 tablespoons butter

In a small saucepan whisk together lime juice and zest,sugar, eggs, and salt. Turn on the the burner to medium heat and whisk constantly until the mixture comes to a boil. Boil one minute, still stirring and remove from heat. Stir in butter and cool. Pour over graham cracker crust or eat it straight up!  Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to a week.

It's that easy!  I made it twice in one week it was so good!!
