Award-Winning Lemon Curd
This recipe won second in a lemon curd contest that The Advocate had several years back. I was a Chef at a tearoom so the rich lemon curd was always a huge hit with the customers. You can use lemon curd as a filling for cakes, pies.....my favorite is mixing it with whipped cream, filling a graham cracker crust and refrigerating for a delicious cool dessert. And, of course you can always use it as a spread with scones or biscuits.
2 ¼ cups sugar
2/3 cup lemon juice
8 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 sticks(1 cup) salted butter, sliced into 6 pieces
Combine sugar, lemon juice and egg yolks in a heavy pot. (You can also use a double boiler). Heat mixture over medium heat for about 12 minutes whipping the entire time. When the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon, remove from heat. Add butter and mix well. Makes 3 ½ cups.
