Tangy Grapefruit Curd

Tangy Grapefruit Curd

Grapefruit curd is delicious and tangy. It's super easy to make in the microwave, or on the stove.

The grapefruit curd can be made as is, or for something a little more special, add in a few leaves of shredded fresh mint.

The freshness of the mint perfectly complements the grapefruit taste.

In a microwave-proof bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, whole egg, and sugar until well combined. Whisk the grapefruit juice and grapefruit zest into the egg mixture.

If adding fresh mint, stir through the shredded mint now.

Place the bowl in the microwave and cook in 40-second increments, stirring each time for around 4 minutes in total until the curd has thickened.

Stir the cold cubed butter through the hot curd and stir until smooth. Pour the finished curd through a fine-mesh sieve into clean jars.

The curd will thicken more as it cools.  It can also be made using a double boiler method on the stove.
