It’s been raining these past couple days and will continue to rain this whole week. They say “April showers bring May flowers”, but since spring has commenced early this year, i guess it’s “March showers bring April flowers”?
Today i decided to make something fresh & citrus-y to brighten up the otherwise dreary day:
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice (1-2 lemons)
zest of 1 lemon
2.5 Tbsp butter, melted
1. In microwave-safe bowl, whisk together sugar and egg until smooth and thoroughly combined. Whisk in lemon juice, zest and butter.
2. Microwave on high in one-minute intervals, stirring after each minute, for about 2-3 minutes. Lemon curd is done when it coats the back of metal spoon.
3. Remove from microwave, push through fine-mesh sieve and pour into jar.
This lemon curd is so tasty: a little tart, a little sweet, a lot of bright lemony flavor! It’s so easy to whip up too. No need to get this at the grocery store anymore!
It’s very versatile: you can spread it on scones and muffins, top it on pound cake or cheesecake, fill it in cookies or cupcakes, stir it in yogurt, or simply eat it with a spoon! 🙂
