Refrigerate Lime Curd

Julane5531's picture

I made lime curd for Christmas gifts.  Does it need to be put in refrigerator?  How long will it keep?  I plan to take them to work.  I am wondering if it will keep throughout the day.  Thanks in advance.

Yes, it needs to be refrigerated. If you are keeping it for them to take home, you need an ice chest.

I agree with Gretchen-- although the acidic pH will stabilize the curd somewhat, it is better to refrigerate it.  What recipe do you use?

 I'm just chiming in to say that I envy those lucky curd-eaters on your holiday list!  I make CookiMonster's Honey Carmels for gifts:

Do you may anything else?  I've also made Traci's Almond Toffee ( http://www.cookstalk.info/hazelnut_butter_toffee.htm), or Greweling's Almond Buttercrunch, but am too busy this year.
