  1. This sounds like just the thing I would crave on a sunny morning too! And it seems pretty simple to make too! Thanks for sharing - I'm looking forward to making my first custard soon!

  2. This sounds amazing. I've gotten into trying out different fruit curds lately and this one is definitely a different flavor! I mean, I thought about lime curd but the cardamom is a nice twist on it.

  3. Yum! I love that you've added cardamom in it, it's one of my favourite spices!

  4. Love the picture with the cute jar and the luscious curd on the edge. I just want to lick it off.

  5. I am on a huge cardamon kick, probably because I just bought a big ol' jar of it a couple weeks ago. I shouldn't be reading all these yummy food blogs right before lunch, this looks so good.

  6. Oh lime and cardamom, how interesting....I love both ingredients and have never put them together. Inspired:)
