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
