Lemon Curd Filling

  • 4 whole eggs
  • 125 ml coconut oil
  • 6 Tablespoon honey
  • 4 whole lemons juice ONLY, of 4
  • 2 Tablespoon gelatine I used 1 1/2 leaves gelatin

Honeyed Pears

  • 6 whole pears peeled (if you like) 1/4'd and cored
  • 1 whole lemon JUICE
  • 1/2 cup honey


  • Preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
  • In a food processor, blend the oil, honey and eggs.
  • Sift the flours and salt into the processor and blend until it forms a ball ready to use in your chosen recipe ( if it is too wet ad a little extra flour)
  • Roll out the pastry case and bake blind for 15 min( approx) remove the beads and bake till golden ( 5-6 min). Cool
  • Set up a double boiler with water simmering underneath and add the oil and honey together with the lemon juice. Whisk well.
  • Heat until hot but not boiling and whisk in the beaten eggs. Keep stirring constantly. The mixture will begin to thicken after about 10 to 20 minutes.
  • Dissolve the gelatin in a little hot water and add to the lemon mixture.
  • Cool, pour into tart case and put into the fridge to set.
  • When set and cool decorate with fruit.

Honeyed Pears

  • Put the honey and lemon in a small oven proof dish. Melt lightly then add the pears and toss. Put them into a 200 C / 390 F oven and roast tossing occasionally. I finished mine on the stove top, caramelizing and little.
