Lemon curd is a famous British fruity and tangy jam. Great on toast, in cakes, on top of pancakes or straight from the jar! This is a delectable recipe, quick and easy to make. It is particularly useful when entertaining and short on time.
In a glass or plastic bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterile jars. Store for up to three weeks in the refrigerator.
