Jam Of The Week: Lively Lemon Curd

Lively Lemon Curd

If you want to taste summer in a mouthful, you’ve got to taste our Lively Lemon Curd.

You can’t underestimate how sweet lemons can be until you make this traditional preserve. You can enjoy it in a number of desserts by simply adding it as a side, dip or sauce.

We love it with Greek yoghurt with a handful of chopped nuts.

You will need

  • 5 lemons
  • 4 eggs
  • 130g unsalted butter
  • 450g of granulated sugar
  • Kilner Jam pan
  • Kilner preserve jars

Method

Wash and zest the lemons and juice.

Combine the zest and the juice in a heat proof bowl and stir in the eggs.

Add the butter and then the sugar.

Place your bowl over a pan of water and simmer.

Stir the mix frequently.

Once the mix becomes thick, allow to cool.

Spoon your lemon curd into your pre-sterilised Kilner jars.

Seal or enjoy.

Tip

Make sure that the lemons are unwaxed.
