  • 3 passion fruits
  • 3 lemons zest and juice
  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g unsalted butter cut into small pieces
  • 200 g sugar
  • pinch salt


  • Open and scoop out the flesh of the passion fruits
  • melt the butter in a Bain Marie/bowl over pan of simmering water
  • Beat the eggs then press them through a sieve (optional but avoids any stringy bits of egg)
  • whisk together the eggs with the passion fruit flesh, lemon zest, juice and sugar and pinch of salt
  • Add the mixture to the melted butter and continue to stir. The sugar will dissolve and everything will come together like a custard. This can take up to 15 minutes.
  • The passion fruit and lemon curd is ready when it coats the back of your spoon without all sliding off. Remember it will become firmer as it cools in the jars
  • Ladle into sterilised jars
