Delightful Lemon Curd

Take one great ingredient and you can make wondrous magic with it - Yep that's right, Lemon!

Ever since I was a kid, I loved lemon curd, that sweet lemony jam spread all over a mountain pile of toast every Saturday for breakfast all whilst binge watching cartoons. Now an adult, armed with some basic tools, kettle, pot, glass bowl a few key ingredients and every day could be a Saturday, totes living the dream!

This delightful lemon curd is totally effortless and can go on anything and can be used for a variety of desserts too, which I will make for you soon I promise.

125 grams unsalted butter
Juice and zest of 3 lemons
220 grams of caster sugar
6 egg yolks

  1. Boil some water in a pot and place a heat proof glass bowl on top, make sure the bowl does not touch the hot water.
  2. Melt the butter in the glass bowl, whisk in the lemon juice, zest and sugar.
  3. Add the egg yolks and whisk until the Lemon curd is smooth. Continue to do so for 15 minutes, taking care not to let the curd boil. The consistency you are after is one the will coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  4. Remove the curd mixture from heat and pour into your jars and set aside to cool before placing in the fridge. Or if in a plastic container store in the freezer, it will keep for 2 months.
Told you that was easy peasy, lemon squeezy!

The greedy piggy I am, I like to slather this on a nice slice of cake immediately or some toast whilst it's still warm. These lemon treats also make great little gifts to friends and loved ones too.
