    About this recipe: This is a great, foolproof way of making a spread which usually curdles if you look at it. It is ready literally in minutes. Eat spread on fresh bread or warm toast or use in pies and tarts.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 10 

    • juice and finely grated rind of 4 large lemons
    • 185g unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
    • 3/4 cup (185g) caster sugar
    • 4 large fresh eggs, well beaten

    Directions
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:19min 

    1. Put 2 clean jars to warm in a slow oven while you make the curd.
    2. Put the lemon juice and rind in a medium microwave-able bowl. Stir in the sugar and butter, cut into small pieces.
    3. Microwave, stirring often, until the butter and sugar are melted but the liquid is not too hot-about 60 seconds.
    4. Whisk in the eggs vigorously in a thin, steady stream until very well combined. Give the whole a quick whisk. Microwave on full for 2 minutes without opening the door. Remove and whisk very well. Allow to stand for 1 minute.
    5. Microwave on full for another 1 minute.
    6. Spoon into the warmed jars. Allow to go completely cold before sealing.
