Lemon Curd

Fresh lemon zest

Use this special topping for all our scones, excluding Chocolate Almond, and for one of our favorite desserts: White Chocolate Mousse with Lemon Curd.  This version is a little less dangerous than it’s counterparts because we use whole eggs instead of only egg yolks.  Still seductive though!

INGREDIENTS:

4 large organic eggs

1/2 cup (4 oz.) granulated sugar

zest of one organic lemon

2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 3 medium large lemons)

1/2 cup (4 oz.) unsalted butter, cut into pieces

DIRECTIONS:

1.  In a medium sized heavy sauce pan beat together the eggs and sugar until light and frothy.

2.  Add the lemon juice, lemon zest, and butter and cook over a medium low heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture thickens: 5-7 minutes, perhaps a little longer.

3.  Stir through a sieve to remove the bits of zest if you want a very smooth (curd).

4.  Set aside to cool slightly before transferring to a glass bowl and covering with waxed paper.  Refrigerate as soon as the lemon curd is lukewarm. Serve chilled.
