Lime Curd is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Unimom from Almost perfect This recipe makes perfect curd with zero angst. I do have two issues which why it lost one star. First, the amount of lime juice should have been in volume not a number of limes. The amount of juice you yield varies greatly. If I had used five of my big juice limes, the product would have been way too tart. I had to guesstimate the number of lime I needed to produce my curd. Second, even though my Vitamix makes smoothness easily, one should never assume that all those nasty little connective prices will disappear into the mixture. The final curd should be strained to be sure. I hope th corrections can be made. That said, the recipe is awesome. If anyone needs an excuse to purchase a Vitamix, a citrus curd is it. Thanks, Steve.

Do you add peeled limes, or juice them first? How much liquid should this be, based on small or large limes?
You will need about the juice and zest from 5 limes, you should have about 1/2 C of lime juice for this recipe.
