Luscious lemon curd

This afternoon, I made six jars of this lovely lemon curd, which I first tried back in 2010 - weirdly also posted then on the 17th April: it must be the time of year for lemon curd!  The FH has had a taste and complained that he didn't get more to taste, but it needs time to cool and set in the jars.  Using our eggs gives it an amazing yellow colour that is completely natural.  The worst part of making it is juicing the lemons and getting lemon juice in the cracks in my hands - it stings!

Unfortunately, I shall have to stick to eating Sainsbury's Value Lemon Curd at 22p/jar myself as that is dairy free and this home made stuff has real butter in it!

Do let us know what you think if you try the recipe - it is really good.....
