How to make Lemon curd using Lemon Myrtle

Step 1:

Cut the butter into cubes and set aside.

Step 2:

In a saucepan, add the lemon juice, caster sugar and Lemon Myrtle. Set aside.

Step 3:

In a mixing bowl, add the eggs and egg yolks and whisk until well combined.

Step 4:

Pour the eggs into the saucepan and whisk everything together until well combined.

Step 5:

Heat the saucepan over a low flame and keep stirring until the curd thickens, about 8-10 minutes. Make sure the flame isn’t too high to avoid the eggs scrambling.

Step 6:

To test if the curd is ready, dip a wooden spoon into it. You want it to coat the back of the spoon.

Step 7:

Add the butter 2 cubes at a time, stirring until the cubes have melted before adding the next 2.

Step 8:

Once all the butter has been added, remove the saucepan from the flame and strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl. Ready to serve.
