  • Remove pan from heat, and whisk in butter, a piece at a time, until well combined. Strain mixture through a sieve into a glass bowl. Lay plastic directly on surface to prevent a skin from forming. Chill 3 hours or overnight to set the curd.

Super fast and easy. One of the best curds I've made and I went to school for baking a pastry! Highly recommed it.

This is a wonderful topping to have with afternoon tea on crackers. Too much work to make only one recipe so I doubled it !!!!
