  • 2 lemons - unwaxed, zest and juice
  • 80 g rice syrup - honey if following the SCD or GAPS or Paleo diet, maple syrup for those on low FODMAP - more if you'd like it sweeter
  • 40 g coconut oil - I use Coconut Merchant
  • 3 eggs - ideally organic


  • Grate the zest of the lemons into a heatproof bowl that fits over a saucepan
  • Add the juice of the lemons, the rice syrup and eggs and whisk to combine
  • Place the bowl over a pan of simmering water making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water itself
  • Add the coconut oil and whisk continuously until the oil melts and the mixture thickens (this took around 10 minutes). It will be ready when it coats the back of a spoon without falling off
  • Pour the hot lemon curd into a sterilised jar allow to cool then keep in the fridge
