Lemon Curd

It easy to find a great lemons in market this time , For me lemon is so cute .. ! love the colour, love the aroma , interesting ^__^ Two days ago I went to market and bought some of them, well .. didn't have any idea what I want to do with many lemons till I feel craving of piece of Pie .. ! Tadaaaaaaaaa, finally I made a jar of lemon curd and than next day I made lemon-curd pie ..

To finishing touch I put all that lemon curd into the jar and wrap with a piece of fabric and rope, look great and you know what ?? you can get the idea to give your friend something that you make from your own kitchen without spending much money but still look nice

Lemon Curd Recipes :

5 egg yolks

1 cup sugar

4 lemons, zested and juiced

1 stick butter, cut into pats and chilled

Add enough water to a medium saucepan to come about 1-inch up the side. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.

Meanwhile, combine egg yolks and sugar in a medium size metal bowl and whisk until smooth, about 1 minute.

Measure citrus juice and if needed, add enough cold water to reach 1/3 cup.

Add juice and zest to egg mixture and whisk smooth. Once water reaches a simmer, reduce heat to low and place bowl on top of saucepan. (Bowl should be large enough to fit on top of saucepan without touching the water.) Whisk until thickened, approximately 8 minutes, or until mixture is light yellow and coats the back of a spoon.

Remove promptly from heat and stir in butter a piece at a time, allowing each addition to melt before adding the next.

Remove to a clean container and cover by laying a layer of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
