Homemade Lemon CurdIngredients for Homemade Lemon Curd

Juice and zest of 8 lemons (unwaxed)
400g golden caster sugar
200g unsalted butter
6 whole eggs
2 egg yolks

How to make Homemade Lemon Curd

  • Put the zest and juice of the lemons, along with the sugar into a heatproof bowl.
  • Cut the butter into cubes and add to the bowl, then place over a pan of simmering water (a bain-marie).
  • Stir using a whisk until the butter has melted.
  • Lightly whisk the eggs and egg yolk in a seperate bowl, then stir into the heated mixture.
  • Let the curd cook, regularly stirring for 10 minutes until thick.
  • Remove from the heat and stir now and again while it cools down.
  • Pour the mixture into clean jars and seal.
  • It should keep for 10 days in the fridge.

Try it spread on toast, added to Greek yoghurt or use it to make the most fantastic cheesecake - lightly mix with mascarpone and whipped cream and spoon onto a crushed ginger biscuit base.
