Sweet and tangy, this lemon curd is free from refined sugar, but tastes like the traditional lemon curd you had growing up

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • zest from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp coconut oil softened
  1. Whisk together the eggs, honey and lemon zest until light colored

  2. Add in the lemon juice and coconut oil, and whisk to combine
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Pop the strained curd into the fridge and allow to cool
  6. Keep stored in the fridge for about a week. I have also had success with freezing
Recipe Notes

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
