Lemon curd. Quick, sweet and tangy, this is perfect when you’re craving a little sweetness for your breakfast or afternoon tea. Four simple ingredients including lemon juice and lemon zest are cooked over low heat to create a silky smooth spread that you’ll love.
My favorite ingredient at the moment? Lemons. Gorgeous golden lemons. The all-natural ingredient that tastes delicious in both sweet and savory dishes. And here’s a very classic way to indulge in the sweetness of beautiful lemons.
Lemon curd. The sweet, silky smooth topping for your toast, waffle, pancakes, muffins and so on. Just four basic ingredients are combined together to create the utterly delicious spread. And that includes lemons, sugar, butter and eggs.
Ok, let me walk you through the process.
Start with combining lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar and eggs in a small saucepan. Place this pan over low heat, and add butter. Make sure butter and eggs are at room temperature.
Now all you need to do is whisk, whisk and whisk continuously. At this stage, all the ingredients are combined together to create amazingly smooth and silky texture. It needs to be cooked over low heat very slowly. But if the lemon curd is taking a long time to thicken and reach that beautiful silky texture, increase the heat a little making sure not to overheat and boil the mixture.
Again, you’ll also need to strain this thick mixture if you’re after smooth curd minus grated lemon rind. If you love lemon rind, just skip this step. Now, the next step involves allowing the mixture to cool down. Cover the surface of lemon curd lightly with cling wrap before placing it in the refrigerator.
The best part? You can store this in the refrigerator for about a week. Another delicious way to add more sweetness to your morning toast, scones, muffins or waffles.
And voila, lemons done right!
