How to make lemon curd.
Fool Proof Lemon Curd Recipe Made in the Microwave
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3 eggs PLUS 1 egg yolk
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
- grated rind from 2 lemons
- 1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled slightly
In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter.
Cook in the microwave, high power for 3-4 minutes at 1 minute intervals, stirring well after each minute, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. (I cook for 1 minute twice then 30 seconds and finally three times at 15 seconds). Pour into small sterile jars.
