I was just over at a good friends in Leeds and mentioned my 101 goals and needing to tick some off and if he could help me make some jam sometime.
We got straight down to making lemon curd (not a jam, but my goals - my rules) and it was seriously yummer, recipe below.
_4 medium-sized lemons 100g (4oz) butter 1/2kg (1lb) sugar 4 beaten eggs _
Scrub Lemons, grate rinds, squeeze out juice
Place juice and rind in double saucepan over low heat and slowly add sugar and butter.
Cook, stirring, until all the butter and sugar melt
Add eggs and cook, stirring, untill the curd is thick enough to coat a spoon.
Pour into small jars and seal with waxed disks or paraffin wax.
Cover and store in cupboard for one month, fridge for 3 months, freezer for 9 months.
