  1. Boil white grape juice in a small pan until it is reduced to 1/4 cup. This takes about 10 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.

  2. Whisk yolks, white grape juice concentrate, lemon juice, optional zest and sea salt in medium saucepan until smooth.

  3. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly with whisk or mixing spoon until mixture thickens (about 5 minutes).

  4. Remove pan from heat and whisk in chilled butter until melted.

  5. If using optional zest, strain curd through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl to remove the lemon bits.

  6. Stir in cream.

  7. Chill until ready to use. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools.

  8. Use within five days.
