I love lemon and orange curd, but I had no idea making lemon curd would be super easy. So this beautiful , silky silky lemon curd with colour of the sun is result of my today’s cooking. It’s . Lovely with toasted bread or scone, or used for cakes and tart.
110 ml lemon juice
Zest of a lemon
110 g white sugar
5 egg yolks plus 2 whole eggs
60 g unsalted chopped butter
In a bowl, put lemon juice, lemon zest, eggs and sugar. Add some water to a saucepan. Heat the water ( Bain Marie) and put bowl of egg mixture inside the heated water.
Whisk continuously the egg mixture on a medium to low heat and let the curd gently simmer for about 15 minutes or until it thickens..
Remove it from the heat. Add chopped butter and stir with a wooden spoon until melted. Transfer it to a large jar or small jars, and store it in the fridge or cool place.
