How to Make Microwave Lemon Curd

Step-by-Step

  • 1In microwave safe bowl
    whisk together the sugar and the eggs until smooth.
  • 2stir in the lemon juice, zest and butter cook at 1 minute intervals stir after each minute until thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon
  • 3Remove and spoon into a small clean jar, or make several batches and spoon into sterile jars and give as gifts, Keeps up to 3 weeks in refrigerator
  • 4I recommend straining it thru a small metal strainer just to catch any bits of egg white, and make it smoother. It also thickens more after cooling
