A few weeks back I had a large amount of limes come into my possession (thanks dad!). We were spending the week at his place; when I mentioned I needed a lime for a recipe I was planning on making, he came home with the biggest bag of limes I had ever seen. They have now been sitting in my fridge for a while and the thought of them going bad was enough to get me searching for the perfect recipes to use up this overabundance of limes. Here was one of my favourites, recipe adapted from the nourishing gourmetmakes 1 1/2 to 2 cups
- 3 eggs
- 1-2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup lime juice
- 6 tbsp coconut oil, melted then cooled to room temp
- splash of vanilla
In a medium pot whisk together the eggs, ginger and honey over medium heat. Stir in the lime juice, coconut oil and vanilla. Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens and small bubbles start to pop to the surface. You now have two options, you can leave it as is or scrape through a fine sieve placed over a bowl. It has a stronger ginger flavour if you skip the sieve but it will not be as smooth.
To serve: This tastes great warm or cold. It will thicken once refrigerated and should last up to a week in the fridge. Serve alone or topped with whipped coconut cream or with some fresh meringue.
