    • 240 g sugar
    • 260 g butter
    • ½ tsp salt
    • pot
    • fine grater
    • whisk

    Zest one fifth of the lemons, and juice all of them. Whisk together the zest, juice, eggs, egg yolks, sugar and butter with a pinch of salt in a pot. Warm over medium-low heat, whisking constantly, until it starts to thicken, approx. 10 min.

  • Step 2/2

    • fine sieve
    • plastic wrap
    • bowl

    Remove the pot from the heat and strain the curd through a fine sieve into a bowl. Cover the curd with plastic wrap, making sure the wrap is in direct contact with the curd to avoid a skin from forming. Refrigerate and enjoy for up to 2 weeks!
