This is one of the best recipes for lemon curd I've ever encountered. My husband, who has little interest in "froo-froo food" loves it served with toast or on hot biscuits (scones aren't in his repertoire)


  1. In top of double boiler melt butter.
  2. Stir in sugar, eggs, lemon juice, lemon peel.
  3. Cook over simmering water for 1 hour, or till thickened, stirring occasionally.
  4. Turn off heat. Cover with lid. Allow to cool.
  5. Store, covered in refrigerator up to 3 weeks.
