Speedy Lime and Rose Curd
This lime and rose curd is perfect for gifting! Sweet, tangy, with just the right amount of rosiness. Delicious!
Let’s gets a show of hands, who likes lemon curd? Everyone (obviously)? I am thrilled we are all on the same page.
Now what if I told you that this magical spread, which is great on everything from scones to cake (or eaten from the jar with a spoon) is achievable in the microwave in a couple of minutes in one bowl? This riff on the classic lemon curd uses lime and rose water to make things just the right amount of bougie and sophisticated.
As it comes together in 15 minutes from start to finish, and needs only 6 ingredients, it’s fantastic for last minute “oh s*#t I forgot to get my boss/coworker/childs teacher a gift” situations.
Add a stack of my Tahini, Pretzel and White Chocolate Cookies in the bag and you will be the favoured darling on everyone’s next Christmas list.
Don’t have limes? All good. Swap out the lime juice for lemon or grapefruit juice, or even some passionfruit pulp.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will the curd stay fresh?
The sealed jars should last about 1-2 weeks in the fridge.
Can I use other citrus in my curd?
If limes are expensive or hard to find you can replace the fresh lime juice for lemon, grapefruit or blood orange juice. All of these will be delicious combined with the rose flavouring.
