Lemon Curd

I love lemon curd as a treat. There's nothing quite like it on a scone or toast for breakfast and it makes one feel quite English! With a hot cup of tea... ah, well. It's just wonderful. And easy, easy, easy to make. I would have thought that it was much more difficult, like making truffles or something.

Lemon Curd

4 egg yolks
4 1/2 ounces sugar
3 ounces lemon juice
2 ounces butter
a pinch of salt

NOTE: Use a non-reactive cook pot to make this recipe!

Crack and separate 4 egg yolks into your pot...

Add sugar and salt...

Mix well...

Add lemon juice...

and butter...

Stir constantly over medium-low heat. Do NOT leave your pot even for a minute! And don't allow this to boil either. It burns easily and will ruin the entire batch. Continue cooking until butter is melted and the first bubbles start to appear.

Strain as you pour into glass jars...

Make it look as pretty as you like and store in the refrigerator. And enjoy!
