Fruit curd is a dessert spread and topping usually made with lemon, lime, orange or raspberry. Specific types of fruit curd are named after the central curd in them – for example, that made with lemons is known as “lemon curd”. Wikipedia
200 ml white sugar
3 egg yolks
75 ml lemon juice
5ml lemon zest
75 ml butter
- 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 for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterile jars. Store for up to three weeks in the refrigerator.
- I served it with freshly baked scones.
