Lemon Curd

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter at room temp, cut into small pieces
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest

Directions

  1. In double boiler, whisk together eggs, sugar and lemon juice.
  2. Cook, whisking constantly, until it becomes thick like hollandaise (10-12 minutes).
  3. Remove from heat and pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove any lumps (straining not always necessary).
  4. Add pieces of butter and whisk in until melted. Add lemon zest and let cool.
  5. Cover quickly so a skin doesn’t form. Store in fridge for up to a week.
