Lemon Curd Recipe
This sweet & zesty explosion is a favourite in the Roots Kitchen.
It can be used for anything - from layering a classic Victoria cake to using
it as an accompaniment with a cheese platter.
We use lemon curd as the base for one of our signature desserts:
'Oops, I dropped a lemon tart'...and we convinced the Chef
to share his recipe!
1/2 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
4 tsp Lemon Zest
2/3 cup Sugar
8 Egg Yolks
6 tbsp Butter
1 tsp Vanilla
3 Sprigs Lemon Thyme (optional)
combine all ingredients in a medium sized glass/aluminium bowl
on top of a small pot with simmering water.
Stir continuously until the mixture thickens & coats the back
of the spoon.
Remove the thyme sprigs (if used) & let cool.
Use as desired.
