Grapefruit Curd

Adapted from How to be a Domestic Goddess by Nigella Lawson

Citrus curd, most commonly associated with lemon or lime, is a delicious way to transform citrus. Use any citrus you like. Tangelos and grapefruits will work well on their own as they have a nice, tart flavor. If you want to use sweeter citrus, make sure to use half lemon juice to keep the tart flavor. The curd will freeze well for future use.


  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup citrus juice
  • About 1 tablespoon citrus zest


Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add the rest of the ingredients, stirring well to prevent burning and clumps. Cook, stirring, until the mixture has thickened to a mayonnaise-like consistency. Pour into a jar, where mixture will continue to thicken into a spreadable curd. Refrigerate and use within 1 week, or freeze.
