Ingredients

  • 3 - large eggs
  • 80 ml - fresh Lemon juice
  • 4 g - finely shredded Lemon zest
  • 150 g - granulated white Sugar
  • 56 g - unsalted Butter

How to Make Lemon Curd

  • In a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and lemon juice until blended.
  • Cook, stirring constantly (to prevent it from curdling), until the mixture becomes thick (160 degrees F or 71 degrees C).
  • This will take approximately 10 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and immediately pour through a fine strainer to remove any lumps.
  • Cut the butter into small pieces and whisk into the mixture until the butter has melted.
  • Add the lemon zest and let cool.
  • The lemon curd will continue to thicken as it cools.
  • Cover immediately (so a skin doesn't form) and refrigerate for up to two weeks.
