1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
Zest of 2 lemons (or 1 lemon, 1 orange)
1/4 cup butter, melted
Using a large microwaveable bowl, whisk eggs, sugar and zest together.
Whisk juice and melted butter together, then add it to the eggs, sugar and zest.
Microwave on HI for 3-5 minutes, stirring after each minute.
This is how it looked after 3 minutes.
When ready the curd should coat the back of a spoon. That's how you'll know it's done. Mine took the full 5 minutes to cook. Time varies depending on your microwave.
You could press the curd through a sieve to have a smoother finished product, but I like a little pulp and the zest in my curd. I think it's especially pretty with the orange zest too.
Sterilize jars by pouring boiling water into them. Don't forget to put a piece of cutlery in each jar before the boiling water so as not to crack the jars. Fill and seal. Cool and refrigerate.
Use on toast or to fill tart cups.
