Lemon Curd


Delicious spread that is simple to make and tastes good.


100 g butter cut into small cubes
3 med lemons – zest and juice
180 g caster sugar
3 eggs whisked with a fork


Place a bowl over simmering water in a pot. Ensure the bowl is not touching the water.

To the bowl add the lemon zest and lemon juice, butter cubes, sugar and eggs.

Slowly stir the mix until butter is melted and sugar has completely dissolved.

Keep stirring occasionally until the mixture thickens – around 20 minutes.

Pour into pre sterilised jars and seal for storage or use immediately. Refrigerate after opening.

Serve on warm toasted bagels or toast, use as a spread on sandwiches or fill mini tartlet cases topped with fruit.
