Simple Lemon Curd

This is one of my favorites, ok, you can ask "why do you have a lot of favorites? ^^ The answer is I really love to eat, haha.
Anyway, I love this lemon curd so much, I got the recipe from the book: ..................... I make it many times, it's easy and delicious, with a tangy taste and very little sweetness. If you're the one that love clean tangy taste you will love this curd too.

Simple Lemon Curd



10 ............................................ Eggs
200g ....................................... Superfine sugar
250ml ..................................... Lemon juice
300ml ..................................... Whipping cream (35%fat)
.................................................. A pinch of salt


Put eggs, sugar, salt, and lemon juice in a stainless steel bowl. Using a whisk to mix together for 2-4 minutes, or until the sugar dissolves.




Pour in the cream and mix well to combine. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and use a whisk to stir continuously for about 10-15 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and thick. Have a rubber spatula on hand to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you work. The curd should transform as it cooks, starting off as a very thin cream with froth on top that will then become thick with bubbles. These bubbles will disappear altogether about 5 minutes before cooking is complete. most importantly, keep stirring at all times or you may end up with a grainy texture in the finished curd. 




When the mixture is cooked, remove from the heat, stir for about 1 minute longer to cool a little, then place plastic warp directly onto the top of the curd and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
