Curds are intensely flavored fruit butters. In late 19th and early 20th century England, lemon curd was traditionally served at afternoon tea with scones or bread as an alternative to jam. Simple and natural, curds are usually made of lemon, lime, raspberry or orange, with the addition of eggs, sugar, butter and zest. The ingredients are cooked together until thick, then allowed to cool, forming a soft, smooth, intensely flavored spread that has many delicious uses.
Rich, creamy and pleasantly tart, Elizabethan Pantry's Key Lime Curd tastes like the very finest key lime pie. Made in very small batches, it is a soft, thick, spreadable cooked mixture of farm fresh eggs, sugar, key lime juice and dairy butter, and has the intense, tart flavor unique to key limes. It can be served as a spread for scones or toast and goes well with tea at any time of day. It is also wonderful as a filling in trifles, tarts, and sponge cakes. Layer in a parfait glass with crumbled shortbread for a simple and elegant dessert. The list goes on and on!
