DIRECTIONS

  • Combine eggs, yolks and sugar and whisk until smooth.
  • Add juice and zest to egg mixture and whisk smooth.
  • Whisk very frequently over very low heat until thickened, approximately 8 minutes, or until mixture coats the back of a spoon.
  • Remove promptly from heat and stir in butter 2 pieces 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. When cool, place lid on container and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. May also be frozen.
