Making fresh lemon curd is surprisingly extremely simple. Enjoy it slathered onto fresh bread or used as a sweet and citrusy filling for a tart.


  • 1/2 cup fresh citrus juice
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated citrus zest
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


  1. Place the juice, zest, sugar, and eggs into a medium-sized saucepan and whisk well to blend. Add the cubed butter and cook the mixture over medium-low heat until it becomes thick.
  2. Remove the curd from the heat and cool before transferring to an air-tight jar. Keep in the refrigerator for up to 1-1/2 weeks.
