Lemon Curd


A nice simple  and sweet recipe for everyone’s favourite jam. I remember eating lemon curd at my Great Grandparents after school when I was young. My granddad would watch horse racing and smoke his pipe while my Nana made me jam sandwiches, tea and a bourbon biscuit. This recipe makes one jar (2 lemons a jar, I would say).

What You Need:

2 Lemons (rind and juice), 2 whole eggs, 2 egg yolks, 150g preserve sugar, 100g unsalted butter.

First whisk the eggs and sugar until combined. Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the egg mixture and the lemon juice and rind. On a low heat, keep stirring the yellow sweetness until thick, take off the heat and cool. Put the mixture in a nice sterilised recycled jar, store in the refrigerator. You could also try the recipe with limes, cranberries or tangerines for delectable variety.

Simple and Sweet, Lemon Curd-tastic.

    This sounds sooo lovely! It seems fairly simple and yet, still completely intimidating when I think about making it. Truly a sign that I should! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  7. Your recipes look great, I love lemon curd!
    I lived in South Korea, too, and have now been back in Canada for two years. I miss Korea! Can’t wait to see your Korean recipes.
    Best wishes.

  8. Ah, I’ve been looking for a good lemon curd recipe, I will definitely have to try this one. I used to work for a pastry chef who went to the French Culinary Institute and her lemon curd was out of this world! Sadly I lost the recipe to it though, been looking for once since!
