Lemon Curd -From scratch




I have been seeing a lot of wonderful recipes using lemon curd from cookies and cakes to tarts and pies
I soo wanted to try the lemon curd and did a hunt at local supermarkets but with no luck..
After watching the video here, I decided to give it a try…
I must say that this gooey sweet citrusy lemon curd is a perfect sandwich spread..loving it:-)


Here is the recipe
Recipe from: Joy of Baking
3 large eggs
125 granulated white sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice -3 lemons
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 tablespoon finely lemon zest
 


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 (like sour cream .Took me 12 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.

There you have the versatile lemon curd..I plan to make some cookies with the remaining lemon curd:-)
