Winter, Citrus, Delight! I love anything lemon! It is so refreshing…the tart beauty..the brilliant color. It sings a promise of sunshine and warmth of days to come. Ahhh…..huge smile! Enjoy the Lemon Curd. I’m going to make an abundance of it and freeze.
Check below for 6 Minute Microwave Lemon Curd.
I made the Lemon Curd with whole eggs. I also added them at the beginning, along with the juice and sugar. I made Grapefruit Curd also *recipe soon* and added it after the syrup was made. I was the same either way. Do whatever is easiest for you. This can also be viewed at Examiner.com, please take a moment and visit.

makes 2 1/2 pints
1 cup lemon juice…4 to 8 lemons, depending on size
1 to 2 Tablespoons zest, 1 T is tart
1 cup sugar, more if you want it sweeter
3 eggs, whole
6 Tablespoons butter…use the real stuff, sliced
jars or containers, sterilized
Zest lemons and cover so it doesn’t dry out. Juice lemons to make 1 cup juice.
Stir juice, sugar and eggs to blend. Put a heatproof bowl, stainless steel or pyrex as I used… on top of a pot of water to form a double boiler.
Make certain bowl isn’t too far in the pot and the water does not touch the bowl while boiling. Let the dog out, get the kids a snack, put on comfy shoes and some good music, get your whisk and be prepared to be glued to the stove for 15 minutes more or less. Heat the water to a low to medium boil and start stirring.
Stir, stir, stir, and stir some more.
When the mixture is thick and you can make a line on the back of a spoon, it is ready.
This should have a temperature of at least 160 degrees F.
Add butter, some recipes said to add on pat at a time….I added it all at once and it worked for me. Stir in zest if using…I didn’t use it this but did in the Grapefruit Curd.Pour into clean and sterile containers. I used canning jars.
Put in the refrigerator and let chill completely. Be certain to cover the jars! I put them in the fridge, thinking it would just be a minute,got busy and well, ya know the rest. Cover the jars or you will have a slight film on top. I ate it…YUM!There ya go! Homemade Lemon Curd!
Homemade Yogurt *recipe coming soon* and Homemade Lemon Curd. Enjoy!
