Butter, Sugar and Lemons!


56g, 225g, & 2 zest & juice   ... and 3 eggs!


Got it!  Thanks,


We're in another heat wave! 


I have to bake at midnight when the house is cooling down or in the early morning hours (Gosh, like a real baker!)  to avoid heat exhaustion.  I can't remember a summer so hot as this one... Siestas, refreshing drinks, and cool showers or mountain lakes ...surviving skills!  (My yodel has dried up!)  It does cool down at night, thank goodness!

 Keep it in the fridge remember it has eggs and butter in it so it will not last too long but then no lemon curd  will keep long....


 lemon filling is different thing altogether.... qahtan

They don't say why it can't be exactly, except for "because it has rich ingredients".

They say, however, that if the jars are properly sealed, they'll last 6 weeks in the refrigerator.
