Lemon Curd

Introduction

For Carol! For Carol!
Number of Servings: 20

Ingredients

    55g Butter
    225g Sugar
    2 Large Eggs - beaten
    Juice and finely grated zest of 2 lemons (or 4 limes)

Tips

When it's cold, store in the fridge - it will last about 1 month.


Directions

Put a bowl over a pan of simmering water, and add the butter and sugar until dissolved. Add the lemon/lime juice and zest, and then the eggs whisking as you add them to prevent curdling. Let it cook gently stirring until it is thick and like custard (be patient it takes about 10 - 15 minutes!). Take off the heat and put into a suitable jar.

Serving Size: Makes a jar full!
