How to Make Easy Lemon Curd

  • Put a large glass bowl over a pan of water. Put this on the heat, and once the water has come to boil put unsalted butter and sugar into the bowl.
  • Meanwhile, grate the rind of two lemons and squeeze their juice into another bowl.
  • Once the butter has fully melted, add the rind and juice to the large bowl over the pan.
  • Finally, beat two eggs and pour them into the mixture.
  • Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. Keep it moving slowly all the time so that it coats the edges of the bowl. This will allow it to start cooking on the hot glass.
  • Over the next 20 to 30 minutes it will thicken and you may start to see some white parts forming in the otherwise yellow mixture. This is perfectly normal.
  • Eventually you will see that the mix has become considerably thicker and you will be able to draw the spoon through it and see the bottom of the bowl.
  • Once you have reached this stage it is ready to be poured into the jar.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and very carefully ladle the hot mixture into a sterilised jar using a funnel if necessary to help you get it in, without it running down the sides.
  • Seal the jar so that it is airtight and store the curd in the fridge. It should keep for around a month.
