Lemon Curd

Ok, someone (sorry I don't remember who) asked for my lemon curd recipe. I would have used Grandmom's recipe if I'd had a little more time, but this one was easy and good (and smaller). I think I added more lemon zest than the recipe actually called for since we're big lemon fans. Otherwise I followed the rules. We ate ours with lightly sweetened whipped cream.

Perfect Lemon Curd (from


* 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
* 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
* 3/4 cup sugar
* 3 eggs
* 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed


1. In a 2 quart saucepan, combine lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, eggs, and butter. Cook over medium-low heat until thick enough to hold marks from whisk, and first bubble appears on surface, about 6 minutes.

Greetings from Idaho! Hope this finds you well.
Thanks for sharing- I requested the recipe and am looking forward to trying it.
How is your wait for the arrival of the little one going?

Just dropped in to see how you are. You are missed. Trusting the Lord is doing mighty things in your life. Drop me an email sometime.

Our family music cd is done. Come give us a visit there, too!

Hi Betsy! I felt bad not going back to check who, but I was rather in a hurry at the time. I hope you enjoy the Lemon Curd.
