Lemon Curd for your Valentine!

HAPPY VALENTINES - a day late...
Today I have a little Valentine's Gift that is super fast and easy to make:
A jar of homemade Lemoncurd.

With MFT's new stitched frames you can make the cutest labels for your homemade goodies in notime!
Found this recipe at A taste of home that was very close to the one I make - too lazy to convert my own recipe from dl to cups etc (-: . I wisk mine in a bowl over boiling water instead of directly in a sucepan and I wait with adding the butter till the very end)

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

Directions

  1. In a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk eggs, sugar and lemon juice until blended. Add butter and lemon peel; cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and coats the back of a metal spoon. Transfer to a small bowl; cool 10 minutes. Refrigerate, covered, until cold. Yield:1-2/3 cups.
Have a great day, hugs, Karin
