Home-made Christmas #7 Lemon Curd recipe

Thursday, 17 December 2009  |  Admin

It's still not too late for those of you who haven't made / bought your christmas presents. Home-made Lemon Curd makes a really lovely pressie and it's easy to make too. If you've never tasted homemade lemon curd, then you should make this immediately as it's just gorgeous, so different from the plasticky bought stuff.
Unlike the chutneys etc that take a while to mature before they're ready to eat, this can be made and handed over the next day. It will keep for a few weeks in the fridge but is best eaten within 10 days.
Ingredients
4 Lemons (Zest & Juice)4 Large Eggs12 oz Golden Caster Sugar8 oz unsalted butter (softened & chopped)
Method
Whisk the eggs together with a balloon whisk in a saucepanPut pan on medium heat, whisk other ingredients in immediatelyKeep whisking until mixture thickens (about 7 / 8 mins)Turn heat to low and simmer for 2 minsPour into sterilised jars (warm from dishwasher, or 5 mins at 180c)
This is great on toast but also makes a fantastic lemon meringue pie (very old-skool, I know!)
