Lemon Spread (Lemon Curd)

The following is Gillian's recipe (Food, Recipes & Little Known Facts From The Past) for Lemon Spread (Lemon Curd).


  1. 3 lemons
  2. 4 oz butter
  3. ½ lb caster sugar
  4. 2 eggs
  1. Grate lemon rinds.
  2. Squeeze out and strain lemon juice.
  3. Beat eggs.
  4. Add sugar.
  5. Beat everything well.
  6. Add butter in small pieces, lemon rind and juice.
  7. Stand basin in a saucepan of hot water. Stir over moderate heat until butter and sugar are dissolved.
  8. Regulate heat to keep water in pan below boiling point.
  9. Continue cooking and stirring with a wooden spoon (don’t stop! It’s good for the wrist) until the mixture thickens enough to set when tested on a plate.
  10. The right consistency is reached when the curd coats the back of a spoon.
  11. Put into sterile jars and seal well.
  12. Refrigerate after opening.
  13. Delicious on bread and butter.

Easy as spreading it on the bread! (Something new for me from Oz!)
