Lemon Curd

After my weekend of home grown country hospitality and food I was inspired to send a little thank you gift to our hosts including some homemade Lemon Curd. (Or Lemon Butter as we call it.)

I am sure most families have a recipe that Nan made, and we are no different. Though over the years this has been adapted for different tastes and technology. The recipe I used this time was from the Donna Hay Classics 2 cookbook. But it is a simple mix of lemon juice, butter, sugar and eggs. My secret is home grown lemons. The juice is just so much better than the ones you buy in the store. I also throw in all the egg rather than separating out the whites. 

I hope the jar gifted will be enjoyed as much as I am enjoying slathering mine on freshly sliced crunchy crust bread today.
