Pat’s Lemon Curd

Who knew Lemon Curd was so easy to make until Pat, one of our volunteers, shared her recipe, using just three other ingredients.
Here is the recipe and method – thanks Pat! 
4 eggs
4oz butter
4 lemons
1lb sugar
Whisk the eggs in a heatproof basin.
Add the butter (in smallish pieces), the lemon zest and juice from your lemons, and the sugar.
Put the basin over a pan of simmering water and stir it every 15 minutes or so until it thickens.
Strain if you don’t like “bits” then pot and keep in the fridge.
Pat says “I give mine a couple of minutes in the microwave to kickstart it, but stop before it turns to scrambled eggs!”
Makes two jam jars.
