October 28 Lemon Curd

A new found love of mine is lemon curd. I found an old family recipe and adapted it for toddler cooking.

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • zest of 3 lemons
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
In a microwave safe bowl mix the sugar and eggs. Add lemon juice, zest, and butter. Mix and heat in the microwave in one minute intervals until the curd coats the back of a spoon.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Measure and add ingredients
  2. Crack eggs
  3. Help zest lemon
  4. Juice lemons
  5. Mix
  6. Pour curd into jars
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
The girls had a great time playing with the lemon carcasses. Audrey loved pouring the curd into the jars via a strainer to keep the lemon pulp out. I cannot wait to give these as gifts. 


Audrey wants to hear from you!
