  • ¼ Cup  (85 g) Honey
  • 2 Tbsps Cornstarch
  • 1 Cup  (265.23 g) Fresh Mango peeled and pureed
  • 8 Tbsp Unsalted Butter chopped into cubes
  • 2 Tbsps Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 4 Egg Yolks beaten


  • In a medium saucepan combine mango, butter, lemon juice, and lemon zest.
  • Using a fork stir together cornstarch and honey in a small bowl. Then pour honey into mango mixture.
  • Cook over medium heat until bubbly and butter is melted, stirring constantly. Turn down to a simmer and add egg yolks. Continue to stir until thickened (about 2 minutes).
  • Cook long enough it begins to coat the back of the spoon.
  • Immediately remove from heat and strain through a sieve into a medium sized bowl.
  • Place plastic wrap directly onto curd to prevent a thick skin from forming while chilling. Let chill for 1-2 hrs to thicken.
  • Transfer to glass container with lid and store in the fridge.
