Minutes 00:10
  • 220
    fresh lemon juice - approximately 2 large lemons
  • 1
    finely grated lemon rind
  • 200
    castor sugar
  • 65
  • 2
    large eggs - beaten
  • sterilised jars for storage


Place a bowl over a pot of simmering water, ensuring that the water does not touch the bottom of the bowl.

Place the lemon juice, lemon rind, castor sugar and butter in the bowl. Whisk until the butter has melted and everything is combined. Continue to whisk until the sugar has dissolved.

Gradually add the beaten eggs while stirring. Continue to cook the curd, stirring occasionally, until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon (approximately 15 minutes).

Pour the hot curd into the prepared jars. Allow to cool completely before storing in the fridge.
