Pairing Ice Cider with Lemon Curd Tart

Lemon Curd Tart

Do you love lemon? I love simple recipes made from great ingredients. Lemon curd is like that. If you love sweet and sour, pair this tart with the bright and sweet Essence Ice Cider for a flavor explosion.

Lemon Curd Tart


Basic Lemon Curd

1 cup sugar

8 farm fresh egg yolks

10 tablespoons grassfed butter (like Krimhild Dairy Meadow Butter) cut into 1/2" pieces

4 juice of organic meyer lemons (but of course you can use any lemons, or citrus for that matter)

-whisk lemons, sugar and eggs together in a sauce pan

-add butter and place on medium heat stirring constantly until butter has melted and the mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon.

-stir until the pan has cooled, then set aside to cool
