Creamy Lemon Curd




Creamy Lemon Curd - Natural Homemade Living
We have been busy making creamy, delicious lemon curd! Our favorite is to add it to plain yogurt or use it in overnight oats with a few blueberries or blackberries mixed in!
The best recipe is from Ina Garten, it's easy and turns out every time.


Ingredients:
3-4 lemons
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 eggs, room temperature
1/2 c. butter, room temperature
1/2 c. lemon juice
pinch of kosher salt

Directions
  1. Remove the peel of the lemons using a vegetable peeler. Make sure you don't get the white part, it is very bitter.
  2. Place the lemon peelings and sugar in a food processor and pulse until the lemon zest is mixed into the sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and add the lemon sugar mixture and beat with an electric mixer.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time then add the lemon juice and salt.
  5. Mix until combined.
  6. Pour the mixture into a medium saucepan and cook over low heat until it thickens. It usually takes about 15 minutes or until the lemon curd temperature is 170 degrees F.
  7. Once it has thickened, remove it from the heat to cool.
  8. Pour into container or use small glass jars.
  9. Keep in the refrigerator.  
Enjoy!
Love and peace,
Angie and Tammi
