• MYO Lemon Curd

    Lemon curd is a wonderfully thick, yet soft and creamy, easily spreadable sweet-tart cream that is perfect on quick breads, muffins, cakes and more. This Lemon Curd recipe takes about 12 minutes to whip together from start to finish.

    You'll Need

    1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
    Finely grated zest of 3 lemons
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
    3 eggs

    In a microwave safe bowl whisk sugar, eggs, lemon zest and fresh lemon juice together.

    Slowly whisk in the hot melted butter. Microwave on high for 4 minutes, whisking well after each minute. The mixture should be thick and bubbly.

    Pour the Lemon curd into sterilized jars and seal.

    Cook's Notes: Do not substitute "Dried lemon zest" in this recipe as it just will NOT taste the same.

      I love lemon curd! I wonder if there is any way to make this in another flavor, such as orange or raspberry?

      Does this need to be stored in the refrigerator? Or can it be stored in your pantry?

      Fridge. Good rule of thumb to follow, Anything with eggs that has not been Canned in a Hot water bath or Pressure canner should NEVER be stored in a pantry.
