Lemon Curd (photos)


This is the wife's (MHNBPF) project, using some Meyer Lemons from my brother's tree.

Need:

Zest of 4 lemons



Juice of 6 lemons



One stick of butter at room temperature and four cups of sugar:



Cream the butter and sugar



Add 6 eggs



And mix well



Heat in a straight sided boiler at moderate heat



Until you reach a low boil



allow to cool, then transfer to a suitable jar



Store in the freezer. It is very thick, but will not turn solid.

Useful as a topping on mini tart shells, on vanilla icecream, cake icing, on buttered toast, scones, or if the wife (MHNBPF) happens to be somewhere else, with a spoon



She did this in two batches so we now have four pints in the freezer. It will be used for all kinds of things, that I will photo when the time comes.

She has great love for me.
