Directions for: Dragon Fruit and Citrus Curd


1 dragon fruit, halved with flesh removed

1 lemon, zested and juiced

1 lime, zested and juiced

¼ cup mango, diced

1 cup sugar

½ tsp vanilla

5 large eggs, at room temperature

⅔ cup butter, melted


1. Place the first 4 ingredients in a blender and purée on highest setting until very smooth, about 30 seconds.

2. Transfer to a heat safe bowl, along with sugar, vanilla and eggs.

3. Whisk contents of the bowl until well incorporated.

4. Place bowl over a double-boiler on stove and continue to whisk until mixture thickens, about 6-8 minutes. (Note: you can tell when the curd has thickened when it easily coats the back of a spoon.)

5. Remove from heat and whisk in melted butter.

6. Pour warm curd into containers of your choice and place in the refrigerator to chill. Use as desired.
