DIRECTIONS

  • Zest the lemons and juice the lemons.
  • Combine the zest, juice, butter, and sugar and place in a small saucepan over low heat.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Beat the eggs and add to the mixture.
  • Keeping the heat very low, cook, stirring constantly until the mixture is thickened - 15 minutes or so.
  • Do not let the mixture boil or the eggs will curdle.
  • Strain the curd to get out large bits of zest and any bits of egg that scrambled into small bowls or jars.
  • Refrigerate.
