Lemon Curd

There is just something special about making your own lemon curd, and guess what? It couldn’t be simpler. I love to make a big batch of lemon curd after I’ve made such things as Limoncello and Baked Lemons {which use only the peels of the lemons} Waste not want not ; )
There are a millions things you can do with lemon curd, and I’ll be sharing some of those ideas with you soon here in the Family Kitchen! In the meantime here’s how you can make your own lemon curd.

A cute gift idea: I love to can them into 4 ounce mason jars, not only are they adorable, they make great little gifts too!

Lemon Curd
What you’ll need:

6 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter – room temperature
1 cup Sugar
2 eggs + 2 additional egg yolks
¾ cups Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

What to do:
1. Cream the butter and sugar with a mixer until it’s light and creamy (a few minutes). Add your eggs in one a time, mixing well after each addition. Add lemon juice and mix together. Note: the mixture will look like cottage cheese but will become silky and smooth during cooking.

2. Transfer the mixture into a heavy-bottomed sauce pan. Heat the pan over low-medium heat for approximately 10 minutes until the mixture thickens, stirring often. If the mixture is not thickening, increase your heat slightly and continue to stir.

3. Transfer the cooled mixture into a mason jar with a lid and refrigerate.
