An Easy Lemon Curd For Every Occasion

Ron NebreBasics, recipes3 Comments

Lemon curd is a pastry basic that works well as a dessert on its own or in a pie, tart or parfait. It holds well in the fridge for about a week, so you don’t have to eat it all right away. Unless, of course, you want to.


    112g / ½ cup Mirage Margarine
    5 Eggs, large
    125ml / ½ cup Lemon juice (3-5 lemons)
    300g / 1½ cups Granulated sugar
    Zest of 3 lemons
    pinch Salt


  1. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together on high the Mirage Margarine, lemon zest and sugar for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing each one in completely before adding the next.
  3. Add in the lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Mix for 2 minutes on medium speed.
  4. Pour the mixture into a stainless steel pot and stir over low heat until it starts to thicken and bubble, approximately 8-10 minutes.
  5. Pour through a strainer into a food safe container. Cover the curd with plastic wrap pressed right against the surface to prevent a skin from forming.

  6. Chill the curd right away for at least 3 hours before using.


  • Try making the curd with other fruit purees or juices, substituting the volume directly.

  1. I acquired more new stuff on this losing weight issue. Just one issue is a good nutrition is vital if dieting. A big reduction in bad foods, sugary foodstuff, fried foods, sweet foods, pork, and white colored flour products may perhaps be necessary. Retaining wastes harmful bacteria, and contaminants may prevent aims for losing belly fat. While specified drugs momentarily solve the matter, the bad side effects are usually not worth it, they usually never give more than a short lived solution. It can be a known incontrovertible fact that 95% of fad diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this site. New Osteoporosis Treatment
