Lemon Butter

Every year in winter I have an abundance of lemons that I have to find inventive ways of making use of them. This year I tried my hand at Lemon curd with a little extra rind as I like it zesty!


  • 125g Butter
  • 4 Tbsp Lemon rind (or more if you like it zesty too!)
  • 1 cup Lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar
  • 3 eggs, beaten


  1. Put a saucepan with about 2-3 inches of water in the bottom on the stove & bring to the boil. This will be your double steamer.
  2. Take a stainless steel bowl big enough to sit on top of the saucepan so the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water in the saucepan.
  3. Place the butter in the bowl & begin to melt it.
  4. Once butter is melted add the sugar, rind, lemon juice and stir until the sugar is starting to dissolve.
  5. Whisk the eggs in a separate bowl and add to the butter mixture, keep stirring.
  6. The mixture will slowly thicken, it is ready when you can run your finger along the stirring spoon & you leave a finger line.
  7. Place the melting bowl in the sink with a little cold water in the bottom of the sink to stop the cooking process & cool.
  8. Once it has cooled slightly pour into sterilised jars and refrigerate.
  9. It will thicken a little more once refrigerated.
