How to Make Lemon Curd


For the Curd:

  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 lemons, zest only
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 7 large eggs
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 0.75 cup butter, cubed


In a bowl, whisk the whole eggs and egg yolks together and set aside.

In a heavy bottomed sauce pan combine the sugar, zest, juice and egg mixture together and whisk on a medium low heat until mixture thickens and can coat the back of a spoon. About 15 minutes.

Stir in butter and then remove from heat when it's melted.

Strain and let cool before using. Keep refrigerated.
