lemon curd


a couple of days ago I was given a large bag of freshly picked lemons. yesterday I made lemon curd for the first time ...

450gr sugar
100gr butter
4 large eggs lightly beaten
4 large lemons, juice and rind

put all ingredients in a large bowl set over a pan of simmering water and stir constantly with a wooden spoon until thick and the curd coats the back of the spoon. pour into hot, sterilised jars. cover immediately with waxed discs and when cold label and place in the refrigerator. it will keep for a few weeks.

I love this series of images. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I have made lemon curd once before and really enjoyed the intense flavour. Your jars of curd and your linens look so pretty. Hope your weekend was grand.
