Yummy homemade Lemon Curd


Yummy homemade lemon curd recipe

To make this luscious lemon curd recipe, you will need:

  • 120ml Fresh lemon juice (1/2 US cup)
  • 3 tablespoons finely grated organic lemon zest
    To make the above this recipe uses approximately 3, ideally organic, untreated, lemons
  • 113g of unsalted butter (1/2 cup- 1 stick)
  • 177g Sugar (3/4 cup)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 large egg yolks

4 stages recipe:

First of all: Melt the butter in a heavy medium saucepan over medium low heat

Next: Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the sugar, lemon juice, zest and salt. Whisk in the yolks until smooth.

At stage 3, cook the mixture, whisking constantly, until it thickens and leaves a path on the back of a wooden spoon when a finger is drawn accross it. Do not allow the mixture to boil.

Finally: Immediately pour in this yummy homemade lemon curd through a strainer into a bowl or in jars. Leave to cool to room temperature, whisking occasionally. Refrigerate.

Lemon Curd keeps for a month in the refrigerator (though there is a chance that if it has stayed that long there it’s because it’s been forgotten) and for about 3 months in the freezer.


Jam Jars as beautiful as their content is delicious

Let’s be honest, what would a delicious jam be without a beautiful jar and a gorgeous personalised label?

Opt for labels that will allow you to find your way through all your jam jars and the different types of jam you have made. The ideal label to mark all your jam jars? Our jam jar label. Its advantage? Its shape adapts to all jars. It is washable, resistant and can be personalised ad infinitum!

You can personalise your jam jar labels in many ways with the name of the jam, the date, the ingredients, a little message. There are up to 5 lines of text available.
You can choose amongst 14 different writting fonts, traditional, fancy, cursive… Choose the font that suits your style or theme best. Handwritten style fonts, like E12 or E48, are perfect to match the homemade theme
Next, choose the colour(s) of your stickers. There are more than 30 to select from : from pastel colours to neon, via sparkly, metallic or transparent, the hardest might be to decide which one(s).
Our favourite colour for a label for lemon curd : Transparent with a black text. It will sure stand out on the lovely yellow colour of your lemon curd.

Last but not least, add the finishing touch and complete your personalisation with a logo or border amongst the 50+ available.
