View Full Version : Lemon curd
Does anyone have the recipe for lemon curd? I tried doing a recipe search to no avail and since I am at work I don't have access to the magazines. Thanks?

For a lime-curd variation, substitute lime rind and juice for the lemon rind and juice.
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 large eggs
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 large lemons)
2 tablespoons butter or stick margarine
1. Combine the first 3 ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring with a whisk. Cook until sugar dissolves and mixture is light in color (about 3 minutes). Stir in lemon juice and butter; cook for 5 minutes or until mixture thinly coats the back of a spoon, stirring constantly with a whisk. Cool. Cover and chill (the mixture will thicken as it cools). Yield: 1 1/3 cups (serving size: 1 tablespoon).
NOTE: Lemon Curd can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. You can easily double the recipe and freeze half of it in a heavy-duty-zip-top plastic bag. Thaw in the refrigerator, and use within 1 week of thawing.
