  • 300 g lemon
  • 350 g egg
  • 150 g butter
  • 200 g white sugar


  • Lemon wash and dry
  • Use two wipers to remove lemon dander and place them in a large glass bowl that can be heated under water.
  • All lemons are squeezed with a juicer. I use a manual juicer. The juice is squeezed directly into a large glass bowl with lemon dander.
  • Add sugar and eggs to lemon juice and beat with a whisk
  • Place the glass bowl in a pot with water, heat it over water, and keep stirring
  • Stir while heating. If the water is boiling, turn off the fire and wait until the water temperature drops before firing. Keep stirring in the middle, about 10 minutes or longer, until the liquid is thick and particle-free, away from the fire
  • Add the softened butter at room temperature and continue to stir
  • Until the butter and liquid are completely blended and smooth.
  • After cooling completely, sieve, put in a sealed bottle and refrigerate in the refrigerator. For all the above, I made a 500ml bottle and a 300ml half bottle
  • Be sure to cool down before bottling


1. Bottles containing lemon curd should be washed and dried to ensure no oil
2. The remaining lemon peel can be drunk with honey, don't throw it
3. It is best to bottle after sieving, it will be smoother
