Lime Tarts

Lime Curd

Lime curd

6 limes        
3/4 cup sugar           
½ tsp Orange Vanilla Sugar
4 eggs well beaten
2 tbsp olive oil

Wash limes and zest the rind of 2. Beat the zest into eggs in a glass bowl.  Warm the limes in the microwave for 1 min, this helps to yield more juice.  Squeeze as much juice as you can from each lime.  Mix  the juice, vinegar, sugars & oil with eggs. Microwave for 8-13 min.  Whisk well every 2 mins. to ensure even thickening.  Let stand 5 mins, whisking once or twice. The Lime Curd thickens as it cools.
