Lemon Curd

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c (1 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 c Sugar
  • 1 1/4 c Strained fresh lemon juice
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 tb Grated lemon zest


This versatile sauce is delicious spread on English muffins, makes a
wonderful cake or pie filling and is also an easy way to enhance plain
yogurt. It has a tendency to darken after about 2 months, so it is best to
make only what you can use within that length of time.

Makes about 4 1/2-pint jars

Melt butter in top of double boiler over simmering water. Add remaining
ingredients and blend well. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until
thick and smooth, about 25 to 30 minutes. Ladle into sterilized jars and
seal with lids.
