How to Make Lemon Curd


  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 3/4 stick butter


  • Beat the egg yolks in bowl.

Expert Tips:

Cook’s Tips

  1. ALWAYS use fresh lemon juice to make lemon curd.
  2. When heating the lemon juice mixture, it does not need to boil, it only needs to get warm enough that the sugar dissolves.
  3. When tempering the eggs, it is very important to add only a SMALL amount of the heated lemon juice mixture to the egg yolks at a time. This will help prevent the eggs from cooking.
  4. When adding the heated lemon juice mixture, make sure to be whisking constantly while you add any hot liquid.
