I made this one time and it was delicious! However, I also love the store bought type just as well and since I don't eat this often, usually just buy a little jar. It's high in calories--but so-o-o good on cream scones! It's so good, along with the clotted cream, one could just eat it alone with a spoon!!

Ingredients

  • 3 tsp
    lemon zest, fresh off the lemon
  • 1/2 c
    freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 c
    white granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp
    butter cut into pieces
  • 3
    eggs, lightly beaten

How to Make Lemon Curd

Step-by-Step

  1. Zest off the rind of the lemon to make 3 tsp.
  2. Mix lemon zest, lemon juice and sugar in a saucepan on medium heat.
  3. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes. Add butter and stir it until it's melted. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
  4. Beat eggs into the cooled lemon mixture until well blended. Return to the heat
    and cook over medium-low heat about 15 minutes until it's thickened. DON'T LET THE LEMON MIXTURE BOIL AS IT WILL CURDLE. It will continue to thicken after it's cooled. Makes about 2 cups and should be refrigerated.
