Lemon curd

Lemon Curd recipe

A beautiful colour, a tangy taste and a creamy consistency. This spread keeps well in the fridge for several weeks. Perfect for those moments when you fancy something tasty on your bread or toast.

Makes 1 ½ jars

  • zest and juice of two unwaxed lemons
  • 6oz sugar
  • 4oz butter
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • ¼ tsp cornflour

Melt the butter in a pan and then whisk in all the other ingredients. On a low heat dissolve the sugar and then simmer gently for 7 minutes stirring all the time.
There will be sufficient to fill one 450g sterilised jar and half fill another to tuck into immediately.
