There are certain foods that just seem to be made for each other, like strawberries and lavender or limes and blueberries. I love these combos. A couple of weeks ago was Beatrix Potter's birthday and we had an impromptu tea outside. I was scrambling for a treat to serve and came up with this simple dish. All it is, is good crusty bread, lime curd and some perfect blueberries. I have to say it is wonderful!
I have mentioned before I like to make curd in the microwave, I find it is foolproof and straining it catches any lumps you happen to have. One thing I always do and never see in recipes, is I add the zest at the end. It keep the oils in the zest strong.

Quick Lime Curd
3 limes, zested (set zest aside) and juiced
3 whole eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter cut into cubes.
In a microwave-safe bowl whisk together eggs and sugar. Add juice and butter. Set bowl in microwave, a run on high for one minutes. Pull out bowl and whisk. Keep doing this till curd is think. I find it takes me 5-6 minutes. Push curd through a sieve into a bowl to catch any lumps. Then stir in zest. Let cool a little while and then refrigerate.
