    Whisk together lemon juice, eggs and yolk, and sugar. Whisk in butter and add lemon zest. Place bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk steadily, but gently, until curd becomes thick and pale and creamy, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and chill until ready to use.

I love to see Anna add dressed up to cook. She's my ideal cook. I splash and spill and wipe my hands down my pant legs, however it does still turn out in the end. I give the lemon curd 5 stars. It's delicious. Sharon W.
