I’m a huge fan of Afternoon Tea. I love those little finger sandwiches, tea cakes, and bite size nibbles. But, my absolute favorite menu item are scones.

I’m talking about those buttery, flaky, scones that just scream to be lathered in clotted cream or lemon curd. Or both.

Lemon curd is actually one of my favorite condiments. I love the punchy flavor and the smooth, creamy texture. And it’s so versatile. It goes well with so many of my favorite bakery items.

So, that got me thinking about what other types of curds we could make.

Of course, I’m a huge fan of tropical fruit. My whole family can devour a case of mangoes in just a few days. I’m not even joking. My mother-in-law will often drop off cases of fresh mangoes at our house on a weekly basis during the summer.

But sometimes, we have just one mango left in the case that is starting to get over-ripe. That’s where this recipe comes in handy.

Whether you live in Hawaii (or any tropical area) and have access to fresh mangoes, or you tend to buy a lot of them when they are in season (like our family), this recipe is for you!

We love spreading this Mango Lime Curd on Fisher scones (my absolute favorite) and it makes a great filling for fresh malasadas or as a layer in this coconut cake recipe.
