A nutritious lemon curd recipe using no refined sugar.
pastured egg yolks
organic maple syrup
organic unsalted butter cut into chunks
fine sea salt
for ice bath
Wash and dry lemons. Zest them and then juice them.
In a heat-proof bowl, combine all of the ingredients except for the butter. (Remember that the ice is for the ice bath ;)
Set the bowl over a pot of simmering water and stir it frequently. Once the mixture thickens (about 5-8 minutes), start adding the butter one chunk at a time.
Once the butter is melted, remove the bowl and put it into a larger bowl with ice to stop the cooking.
You will have zest in your lemon curd. If you would like a smoother consistency (we do), then push it through a fine mesh strainer before it cools.
