Recipe Lemon Curd


Instead of buying It in jars make your own lemon curd


3 lemons
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
4 extra-large eggs
1/2 cup lemon juice (3 to 4 lemons)
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
Using a carrot peeler, remove the zest of 3 lemons, being careful to avoid the white pith. Put the zest in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the sugar and pulse until the zest is very finely minced into the sugar.

Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and lemon mixture. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the lemon juice and salt. Mix until combined.

Pour the mixture into a 2 quart saucepan and cook over low heat until thickened (about 10 minutes), stirring constantly. The lemon curd will thicken at about 170 degrees F, or just below simmer. Remove from the heat and cool or refrigerate.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is required
    to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your
    point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

    Howdy just wanted to provide you with a quick heads up.
    The text in your post are running off the screen in Opera.

    I’m uncertain if this sounds like a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The style and design look good though! Hope you have the issue
    solved soon. Kudos

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to create a good article but what can I say
    I procrastinate a lot and don’t manage to get nearly anything done.
