Bright, tangy fruits are necessary for getting through the cold winter months, and citrus curd has a way of bringing sunshine to the darkest of days. Lemon is classic, but this ratio lets you make delicious curd out of limes, oranges, or any citrus fruit.

To make this tangy yet rich dessert, you'll need a cup of your favourite citrus juice, the zest of one fruit, three eggs (2 yolks + 1 whole), 1/4 cups sugar, four tablespoons unsalted butter, and a pinch of salt. Any citrus will do; you can even combine juices and zests for exciting flavour combinations. Click the link below for exact instructions, but it's really just a matter of heating, cooling, and a good bit of whisking. Once your curd is made, pipe it into little pastry cups, spread on scones, or eat straight from the jar.
