The Lemon Curd will last for about a week, or freeze up to 6 month. It can be used in Crepes, as a Spread or as Lemon cake icing
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/4 pound unsalted butter, room temperature
4 extra-large eggs
1/2 cup lemon juice (3 to 4 lemons)
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
If you not already own a Lemon Zester, use a carrot peeler. Remove the zest of 3 lemons, being careful to avoid the white pith. Put the zest in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the sugar and pulse until the zest is very finely minced into the sugar.
Cream the butter and beat in the sugar and lemon mixture. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, and then add the lemon juice and salt. Mix until combined.
Pour the mixture into a 2 quart saucepan and cook over low/medium heat stirring constantly until it starts bubbling about 10 minutes. Take it off the stove immediately. The lemon curd should have be thick now.
Let cool or refrigerate in plastic container. It’s better to cover with plastic wrap, so no air gets to it, then add the cover.
