Zesty Lemon Curd

Prep Time 15 mins
Cooling Time 3 hrs
Course Dessert


  • 3 large pastured eggs
  • cup raw honey
  • Grated zest of one organic lemon
  • ½ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil, or butter


  •  In a saucepan, mix together the eggs, honey, and lemon zest until melted nicely together.
  • Add in the butter or coconut oil and allow it to melt, too.  Then, pour in the lemon juice.
  • Gently allow the curd to heat up, stirring, until it thickens.  When it's ready, there will be a few bubbles that begin to pop at the surface.
  • After the curd has thickened, remove it from the heat, and pour the curd through a strainer to remove any lemon seeds or large pieces of zest.  Don't skip this step – it's really helps create a smooth curd.
  • That's it!  Cover the curd and chill it in the refrigerator for a few hours.  It will continue to set as it cools.
