I also need to make this egg free (my Fiancee doesn't eat eggs) I am going to try it with Egg Replacement Powder, and see if that works....
Shelf life for apple curd

If kept in a fridge it will keep for 3 months unopened and correctly sealed.

If kept at room temperature consume within 3 weeks.

I like to serve with spiced plain scones :)

The eggs thicken the curd so I'm not sure that it would work without. You could always make a spiced apple butter instead.
Fabulous recipe

This really is a great recipe especially as it only uses 2 eggs.

For max pectin DO NOT peel & core the apples

For egg-free, use a starch like corn starch.
