Lemon Curd:

5 egg yolks - strain yolks to insure smooth curd

3/4 cup sifted granulated sugar

1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice-do not used bottled lemon juice

Finely grated lemon zest

1/4 cup diced unsalted butter - do not use margarine

Use a double boiler to cook curd

Whisk together egg yolks and sugar in the top portion of the double boiler; add lemon zest and lemon juice; whisk thoroughly; set the top portion of the double boiler with ingredients on top of the bottom half of double boiler making sure that the simmering water of the bottom half of the double boiler does not touch the top portion of double boiler. Cook, whisking constantly the curd until mixture is thick and smooth; to test the curd for doneness, the curd should coat the back of a wooden spoon and a clear line should appear when you run your finger down the back of the wooden spoon. Remove from heat; place diced butter into a spouted measuring cup; pour hot curd into measuring cup; strain with rubber spatula, allow butter to melt in curd; after butter has melted, whisk briskly until curd is velvelty smooth; allow to cool, pour into sterilized 8 ounce jars, seal, refrigerate...Enjoy
