I love lemon curd! I always have a jar ready for me to spread the lemon curd over toast, scones, English muffins, or shortbread cookies or to fill cakes and tarts. Lemon curd is make by gently cooking a mixture of fresh lemon juice, sugar, butter, and eggs until thickened. It is very easy to prepare. Watch and learn a method of making lemon curd that is guaranteed to come out silky and smooth, without straining! This recipe will keep in the refrigerator for a week and in the freezer for 2 months.
