DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium-size saucepan, whisk the first five ingredients until thoroughly combined.
  • Get the saucepan on low heat to warm the mixture, and slowly augment the heat to medium. All the while stiring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  • Cook for about 20 minutes until thick and bubbly.
  • Remove from heat and add the butter, one piece at a time, stirring to incorporate.
  • Place in the refrigerator until firm.
  • Note: After cooking the mixture for about 5 minutes, it looked curdled so I strained it and then put it in a glass bowl over a pot with water on a high simmer. I cooked it for about 25 more minutes until it was quite thick and coated the back of a spoon. Then I strained it again and added the butter. It was deliciously tart like lemon curd should be.
  • A sterile mason jar would be perfect for keeping this inches.
