Nana’s Lemon Curd

We may have too many lemons, so it just might be a good time to make some of Nana’s Lemon Curd


  • FOR EACH CUP of fresh lemon juice (plus the finely grated rind of the lemons)
  • ADD
    • 1 cup) sugar
    • 4 eggs (beaten)
    • 125g unsalted butter

Combine all ingredients in a 2 litre saucepan. Cook in a double boiler or over low heat, whisking constantly until thickened (enough to hold scars from the whisk)

    my dear ole Oirish Grandma was so parsimonious that she would often make this from just one left-over lemon. Sometimes I saw her use three or four. She was pretty consistent with the ingredients. I extrapolated after watching a few times. I will try it with less butter.

  3. That’s a LOT of butter.
    I would use 1/2 vol sugar to 1 vol juice,2 eggs and 50gm butter up to the 4 cup o’ juice level.
