  • 6 T . + 1 t. lemon juice
  • 6 T . honey
  • pinch sea salt
  • 1 t . lemon zest
  • 1 egg + 2 egg yolks


  • Place a small saucepan over medium low heat.
  • Add the lemon juice, honey, and salt to the saucepan.
  • Whisk to combine and heat just until warmed.
  • In a separate bowl, lightly beat the egg and egg yolks.
  • Remove the honey/lemon juice mixture from the heat, and slowly add about 1/4-1/2 of it into the egg mix, all while constantly whisking. This is called tempering, where you're slowly warming the eggs, so as to not scramble them.
  • Once the egg mix is tempered, place the pan back onto the heat and whisk the tempered egg mix back into the pan with the remaining honey/lemon juice mixture.
  • Bring the heat up to medium and stir the mixture.
  • Continue to stir the curd constantly for 5-8 minutes, until it is thickened and bubbly.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and cool a bit.
  • Pour the curd into a container and chill it for 2-3 hours until it is cold and thick.
  • Use as desired!
