Calamansi Curd

Labels: , , ,

great on buttery biscuits

I've made lemon and lime curds before and loved both flavors on toasted English muffins or biscuits and thought calamansi would be great too. After a bite of the warm biscuit topped with calamansi curd, I can honestly say it tastes way better than lemon or lime. Or maybe being Filipino I'm just biased. ^__^

The recipe here is very simple to prepare but takes a bit longer to cook. I just love the vibrant yellow, almost orange color the calamansi juice adds to the curd and of course its mild tangy flavor.

Calamansi Curd
makes a little less than 1 cup
2 egg yolks
5 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons soft butter
50 ml fresh calamansi juice
  • In a small non-stick saucepan, whisk egg yolks and sugar until well blended. Add butter and juice and stir with a rubber spatula until combined. Cook on lowest heat, stirring, for 25 minutes. Turn off heat and transfer curd into a jar or ramekin. Leave on the kitchen counter to cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
