Why buy pre-made lemon curd when it’s easy to make your own?
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 cup sugar
6 tablespoons butter
Whisk all ingredients but butter in a saucepan. Stir in the butter over low heat on the stove. Whisk until mixture thickens (between 6 to 10 minutes).
Cover with plastic wrap, ensuring that the wrap is on the surface of the curd so that it doesn’t grow a skin. 🙂
I used this to make lemon meringue cupcakes.
