Homemade Fresh Lemon Curd

I have been wanting to make some of 
My own fresh Lemon Curd since last summer.
I finally got around to doing it...I have NO
idea why I waited so long to try it.
I have "pinned", bookmarked, tagged
and highlighted so many different recipes.
Who would have known that I would just make 
up one of my own?! That is just what I did!
I took the main ingredients then added in
a few of my own. I will WARN y'all that I LOVE
tart lemon flavor. So MY lemon Curd is just that!

Lark's Tart~N~ Tangy Lemon Curd
1/2 C. Fresh Lemon Juice (4-5 lemons)
4 tsp. Fresh Lemon zest
3/4 C. Sugar
8 Eggland's Best egg Yolks
6 TBSP Butter~(I like to use unsalted)
1 TBSP Lemon Powder
1 tsp. Almond Extract

Using a double broiler, bring water to a boil.
Then reduce heat to med./low add in all ingredients
and whisk until thickens. About 3-4 minutes.

Remove from heat and let cool  before storing in
a glass jar. This does need to be kept in the refrigerator.
This will keep for up to 4 weeks.
Now I have had several friends ask me
what do you put lemon curd on?
Pretty much anything! really!
I have spread it on toast,baked it in bread,
 mixed it with fresh fruit for a tangy salad. 
I have even added it to my Lemon Pepper Chicken.
The "skies the limit".

This is one of my favorite things ever!! Thank you for posting.... now I know what I'll be doing this snowy weekend!! Family tradition during the holidays is to pour warm lemon curd over homemade gingerbread. Since we didn't have much of a holiday season this year, I think I'll make up for it tomorrow :0)

This looks so good! Where do you find lemon powder? I'm not familiar with it.

Thanks for the recipe.

I've baked with store purchased lemon curd, but have never made my own. I'm interested in knowing more about the lemon powder too...could you substitute extract? Sure wish I lived closer to you so I could taste some of the amazing creations you come up with! =)

Lemon Powder is Lemon extract in powder form. You can purchase it in many Bakery supply stores and even in some health food store's.
However you can exchange some lemon extract in place of lemon powder.
