Lemon Curd (แยมมะนาว)

This is adapted from one of Delia’s recipe

Because they’re so easy to make, I make them in small quantities (as much as I need them) so there isn’t a lot of leftovers just sitting in the fridge.

What you need:
  • 1 Lemon, zest grated, then juiced
  • 1 Egg
  • 80 g Caster sugar
  • 50 g Unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp Cornflour
How to put this together:
  1. In a bowl, whisk together egg + caster sugar
  2. Add lemon zest + lemon juice. Whisk until well mixed
  3. Add cornflour. Whisk until well mixed
  4. Transfer to a pot over medium heat, add butter, continuously whisk until the mixture thickens, about 5-7 mins
  5. Take off heat, then continue to whisk for 1-2 mins
  6. Leave to cool
