Enjoy the recipe! I hope you try it out.
Simple, delicious, tangy, sweet. Lemon curd is a perfect addition to any dessert...or on its own.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 3 eggs
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice: 2 to to 3 lemons would probably suffice (and believe me, freshly squeezed lemon juice yields much better results than store bought lemon juice)
- 4 tablespoons (or half a stick) unsalted butter: make sure the butter is at room temperature and cut into cubes
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest: use a grater with the smallest holes and be sure not to get the white pith
Tip: Before juicing the lemons, zest them first. Grating the lemons are easiest when they are cold from the refrigerator. On the other hand, squeezing the lemons is the easiest when the lemons are a bit warmer.
