I love the flavor of this lemon curd. I've made it a few times now... and it loses a star for method rather than taste and texture. I have found that when I cook this on the stove in a saucepan it's all too easy to have the eggs curdle, so I've changed methods to the double boiler. This does take about 3 times as long, but makes a sinfully rich, smooth custard. I add everything but the butter, then once it's starting to get hot enough to melt it, I add the butter a few cubes at a time, letting it mostly melt between addings. Then I dump the whole thing thru a strainer into another bowl, cause any time you are cooking with eggs, it's best to strain cause there are always a few chunky bits you don't want in your custard. Love this on crepes, scones, muffins... with a spoon! Thanks for a wonderful treat...
