  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil softened


  • Whisk together the eggs, honey and lemon zest until light colored
  • Add in the lemon juice and coconut oil, and whisk to combine
  • Cook the curd over a med-low heat. Whisk continuously until it thickens and there are small bubbles on the surface. This took me about 20 minutes
  • Once the curd has reached the desired level of thickness, pour it through a strainer placed on top of a large bowl. It should be thick enough that you have to push it through the strainer with a spatula
  • Pop the strained curd into the fridge and allow to cool
  • Keep stored in the fridge for about a week. I have also had success with freezing


I used the more bitter lemons, as that is what I had on hand, and I also like a bit of bite to my curd. If you prefer it to be sweeter, then use Meyer lemons
