How to Make Lemon Curd
- In stainless steel bowl whisk eggs, sugar and lemon juice (you may cut the lemon juice to 1/3 cup if you don't like it tart). Taste it for preference. When water is boiling, set the bowl over the water and start whisking. Whisk until thickened and the consistency resembles that of yogurt or mayo in thickness. This will take about 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat, whisk in butter and zest. Set to cool, stirring occasionally then pour into jars. Refrigerate. Suggestion: Label jars with a cute "From the kitchen of...your name" label and clipart of a lemon, and there you go, a very nice gift.
