Sunshine-In-A-Jar AKA Lemon Curd

Cooked: 2022-11-05

Stored: 1 x 500mL

What I did:

  1. Ingredients:
    • Three yolks leftover from making bread
    • two large eggs
    • one cup of white sugar
    • One lemon fo zest
    • 1/2 cup lemon juice
    • 2/3 cups cold margarine
  2. Preperation:
    • Place the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, lemon rind and lemon juice in a medium bowl and whisk to combine.
    • Transfer the mixture to a large saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved.
    • Reduce the heat to low and add the butter, a few small pieces at a time, stirring continuously until melted.
    • Cook, stirring constantly, for a further 4–6 minutes or until the curd has thickened and coats the back of a spoon.
    • Immediately strain into a heatproof bowl or jar, discarding any solids. Allow to cool slightly and cover. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until chilled.

Notes on this batch:

  • Perfection as always.
