  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice, from about 4 large lemons
  • 4 large eggs
  • Pinch salt
  • Zest from 4 lemons


  1. Once you have the lemon curd going, you shouldn’t stop until it’s done. Prepare your ingredients and set up your tools so that you can easily get what you need as you go. A fine mesh strainer over a medium bowl should be kept near the burner. Prepare a rubber spatula and a whisk.
  2. Mix the sugar and eggs in a medium saucepan. Place over a moderate flame. Whisk until everything is mixed and the consistency is even.
  3. While still whisking, add the lemon or lime juice, zest, and a little salt. When it appears to be combined, add the butter a cube at a time while whisking. Allow the pieces to melt halfway before adding more. Be sure to whisk everything well, including the corners and crevices of the saucepan.
  4. Cook the curd, whisking occasionally, for another 10 minutes, or until it reaches a pudding-like consistency. Turn off heat. (As it cools, the curd will thicken even more.)
  5. To get rid of the lemon zest and any cooked egg chunks, strain the curd through a fine mesh sieve. You can speed up the cooling process by stirring the curd for an additional 2 minutes after you’ve pushed it through with a spatula.
  6. Place the curd in a jar (I prefer to use Ball or Weck canning jars) and cover it tightly with plastic wrap. Let it sit out on the counter for 15 minutes to cool. Once it has reached room temperature, seal the container tightly and place it in the refrigerator or freezer.

The National Center for Home Food Preservation recommends keeping lemon curd in the fridge for up to a month. It has a shelf life of 1 year in the freezer. Curd can be thawed by placing it in the refrigerator 24 hours before it will be used.

Homemade lemon curd is more than just a delicious, tangy spread. It’s a testament to the joys of fresh, simple ingredients coming together to create something truly magical. Whether you’re smearing it on a morning toast, dolloping it on a slice of pound cake, or even just enjoying it by the spoonful, this lemony delight promises to elevate every culinary experience. Not to mention, the health benefits of using natural, unprocessed ingredients. By making it at home, you’re in control of the ingredients, ensuring no unnecessary additives or preservatives. So the next time life gives you lemons, you know exactly what to make!
