Home-made curd is quick and easy to make, and so much tastier than the shop-bought variety. For this recipe, I used grapefruit juice instead of the traditional lemon juice. This is a wonderful recipe to have in your repertoire, and is almost certain to become a family favourite!
To make one grapefruit curd tart, you will need:
FOR THE PASTRY AND FILLING:
400g shortcrust pastry
180ml grapefruit juice 80ml castor sugar
6 egg yolks
120g butter, chopped
FOR THE MERINGUE:
4 egg whites
125ml castor sugar
1 Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a large, fluted tart tin, or six small 25cm fluted tart tins. Roll the pastry out on a floured surface to 5mm thick.
