I was looking through my old recipe book, which I have had since around 1990, for keeping notes. This is my recipe for lemon curd. It is a very basic recipe. You can add the juice of other citrous fruit but actually, lemon is still the best.
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 50g butter
- 2 eggs
- 250g caster sugar
- Beat the eggs
- Put all the ingredients in a double pan (one pan sits on top of the other, boiling water in the bottom pan)
- Heat very gently, stirring all the time, until the mixture is fully blended and becoming thick.
- Pour into clean jam-jars.
