While I am waiting to find the time to make this years Jam, I thought I would make some Lemon curd.
You only make this in a small quantity as it only keeps well for a month,although this will be lucky to last the week.
Its so easy to make,anyone could do it, you will need…
juice from 4 lemons
12oz caster sugar
Place all ingredients into a bowl, stand it over a pan of simmering water.
Stir until the sugar has dissolved and then continue heating and stirring until the curd thickens. (between 20 and 30 mins )
Strain the cooked curd through a fine sieve before putting into jars
A tip…… beat the eggs before adding to the bowl

Ooh – that looks scrummy. I love home-made lemon curd. The shop-bought one tends to taste a bit plasticy. Is there such a word as plasticy? Oh well, there is now :).
Looks lovely. Pretty tops!
Oh, lovely! My daughter made this for me as a present, when she was very young. I must try this recipe myself.
cherrypie … it keeps for a month or 3 month in the fridge.
Ellee… I think this is the perfect recipe, not too sweet and still tart from the lemon too.
Geoff a jar is for your house so you will get to see what it tastes like . 🙂
Wow looks a good colour – wonder what it tastes like 🙂
I always use less sugar than the recipe states as I don’t have a sweet tooth.
Looks good, might try that 🙂
Anything with lemons is a winner for me. How long does it keep?
That’s all you need to do?? sounds easy! I had thought it would be much more of a palaver..
Might try it some time 🙂
