1 C. White Sugar
1 C. Fresh Lemon Juice (I used the juice from the 3 zested limes and then topped it up with Real Lemon, Lemon Juice)
3 Lemons, zested (I actually used limes and it was amazing)
1/2 C. Margarine, melted
~Whisk the sugar and eggs together in a microwavable dish until smooth.
~Mix in juice, zest and margarine.
~Cook mixture in microwave for 30 second intervals. Stir mixture thoroughly after every 30 seconds, to prevent eggs from becoming chunky (you don't want scrambled eggs curd)
~When mixture coats and remains on the back of a metal spoon it is done. (For me this took approximately 4 minutes total cooking time)
~Run mixture through a sieve to remove any egg chunks or pieces of zest.
~Store in the fridge (the mixture will thicken up even more as it cools so don't be alarmed that it is still pretty runny before this step).
Enjoy, and stay tuned for some great ideas for which to use the curd...
Okay, I'll give you a hint. It involved berries...lots of berries, both recipes actually :)
