Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 2 hours (refrigeration time)
IngredientsSwerve (or Erythriol & Liquid Stevia) | 2/3 Cup
Salt| 1/8 tsp
Organic Egg Yolks | 6 LargeGrass Fed Butter OR Butter flavored coconut oil | 3 Tbsp (For butter, cut into small cubes)
Combine the Lemon juice, sweetener, salt and egg yolks into a small and heavy saucepan over medium heat. Heat while constantly stirring with a whisk, until it gets thick – this is about 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat and add butter, blending as it melts. Put the curd into ramekins or a bowl and chill completely. I like to spoon mine into shot glasses and top with some sprinkled coconut, or with mini sugar free meringues.
