GREAT TASTING CURD, & so easy to make, too! Definitely a keeper as well! I enjoy using the stuff in many ways, but really enjoy it spread on a warm slice of nutty, whole wheat bread, along with some cream cheese! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my groupmates in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #37]

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash lemons carefully and zest, by taking care not to get the white pith. Juice the lemons.
  2. Put the zest into a pan, add the cornflour mixed with lemon juice. Add the sugar.
  3. Whisk lightly over a slow heat until dissolved.
  4. Beat eggs, and then add to the lemon mix, continuously whisking.
  5. Turn up the temperature a little and whisk continually until the mixture thickens (about 3-4 minutes).
  6. Remove from heat then pour directly into jam jars. After they have cooled, refrigerate.
