How to make Cherry-Lime Curd

Cherry Lime Curd Recipe @createdbydiane.jpg

Hurry……and go get some cherries

this cherry lime curd is AMAZING!

It’s deliciously creamy and a little tangy but sweet all at the same time,

and you will want to eat it right off the spoon!

It’s perfect with scones and I’ll be sharing my new favorite scone with you very soon.

This cherry lime curd is great on ice cream if you can manage not to devour the whole jar before you have time to grab and ice cream scoop and dish!

It’s also wonderful on pancakes, waffles, muffins and on plain yogurt.

How to make Cherry-Lime Curd
  • 1 cup fresh cherries pitted and cut in half
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ lime juiced
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  1. in saucepan combine lime juice, cherries and sugar on medium to medium high heat and bring to a boil for 2 minutes
  2. strain mixture with fine strainer and press down on the cherries until only the skin is left in strainer
  3. whisk egg yolks and slowly add sugar and cherry mixture to it whisking continually until all incorporated, return mixture to heat and melt in the butter while whisking until it thickens (coats back of spoon)
  4. remove from heat and let cool

    I’ve only had lemon curd before, but I love the flavor of cherry lime! I’m definitely going to have to try this. I bet it would be good on my morning yogurt!

    Hi there–is that juice of 1/2 lime, or is the word “cup” missing? Thanks so much–can’t wait to try this!!

    This is gorgeous. The color is amazing, and I already have a list going of what I would smear it on.
