Recipe Tuesday - Lemon Curd

Lots of summery picnics waiting to be arranged
Tartelettes to be filled with the first strawberries of the season
Several birthday parties coming up

3 fresh organic eggs
juice of 3 organic lemons 
grated zest of 1 lemon
100gr butter, cut into slices
200gr sugar

Whisk the eggs until they are creamy
Add the sugar little by little
Add lemon zest and juice and butter

Heat the whole mix in a double boiler/ bain-marie for about 20 minutes 
Let gently simmer (not boil) and stir from time to time
When the mixtures thickens, fill the lemon curd in clean jars

Pretty up the jars with a nice little paper tag, some fabric, a ribbon and washi tape

(or enjoy it as a topping for tartelettes together with fresh berries)
