We have lemons. Oh boy do we have lemons. A prolific tree by the Bay and another one on the property by the River.
I made some lemon curd. The recipe makes about a cup. I haven't tried doubling it so not sure that would work. It is so easy I just make a cup as we use it or if I want to give some away.
I don't normally the microwave for much except reheating but I've used the recipe for years and it is always successful. MICROWAVE LEMON CURD (makes about a cup) Zest of one lemon 6 Tablespoons sugar 3 eggs 1/4 cup lemon juice 1/2 cup butter Combine lemon zest, juice, butter and sugar in a micro-safe glass bowl of at least 4 cup capacity. Cover bowl with plastic wrap turned back to allow steam to escape. Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Meanwhile beat eggs in a small bowl with a wire whisk. Gradually beat in about 1/2 of the hot lemon mixture. Pour this egg/lemon mixture back in the microwave bowl with the remaining hot mix, beating with a wire whisk to make it smooth. Microwave uncovered for 1 minute 30 seconds. Remove bowl from microwave and whisk mixture until smooth. It should be thick enough to coat a spoon. If not thick enough, microwave 1 minute longer (I've never had to do this). Whisk until smooth Put lemon curd in a one cup container and refrigerate. Keeps one month.
