After experimenting on macaron recipes I had a bowl full of egg yolks and fruit bowl of lemons getting a bit dried out so decided to put these ingredients to good use and make a batch of easy lemon curd . As I had a few limes I used half lemon, half lime juice . Lemon curd has to be one of my most favourite ingredients . I love to spread it on toast . It’s also great to use in Pavlova , swirl through a cheesecake or use as a filling for a light sponge cake. Ingredients
3 whole eggs
3 egg yolks
125ml lime juice
125ml lemon juice
Grated rind of 1 small lemon
Put the butter into a glass microwaveable bowl and melt on full power . Beat together the eggs and yolks and add to the butter together with the juices . Blend the cornflour into the sugar and add it to the mixture . Stir in the rind .
Mix everything with a whisk . Microwave for 1 minute , remove and stir well with the whisk. Return to the microwave and cook for another 4 minutes stirring well after each minute. When the mixture just starts to boil and thicken it is ready . Remove and pour into sterilized jars. When cool store in the fridge for up to 3 weeks .
