Brought a bowl of lemon curd to the seedsavers' gathering yesterday afternoon. Together with some freshly baked bread. The lemon curd frenzy that ensued was amazing. Here is the recipe:
Zest (fine) and juice of 6 lemons
8 eggs - lightly beaten
200g unsalted butter
Bring some water to boil in a saucepan. Put all ingredients in a heat-proof bowl. Place bowl over saucepan.Stir occasionally, until everything is mixed in together. Then continue stirring for about 10 minutes or until mixture thickens. Take off heat, pour mixture into sterilised jars.
