Lemon CurdAdapted from the Southern Living 1987 Annual Recipes, Page 139
- 5 beaten eggs
- 2 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 Tbsp grated lemon rind ( I forgot to include this but the lemon curd turned out tasty anyway.)
Boil water in a double boiler. (I used two pots, one on top of the other.) Put the eggs, sugar, lemon juice, butter, and lemon rind in the double boiler. Stir. Stir Stir. The mixture should thicken after about 15 minutes of cooking. When the mixture thickens, remove from heat and cool before serving. Goes great with doughnuts!
