Make your own lemon curd! You do need a pressure cooker, and remember to only fill the jars half full. Once you make your own, you'll never buy it again!

Ingredients

  • 1/4

    cup of melted butter, half stick

  • 1 1/3

    cup of sugar

  • 3/4

    cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1

    teaspoon grated lemon peel

  • 3

    large eggs, and 1 egg yolk

  • 2-pint jars with lids/rings

Directions

Stir all ingredients together with a spoon then mix with immersion blender; I do it all in a four-cup silicone measuring cup, including melting the butter in the microwave. Easy cleanup! Pour into jars (fill pint jars only half full) put lids on finger tight. Put two cups of water in inner pan. Place jars on trivet or steam basket. Close and lock lid and close the vent. Manual, Hi, 9 minutes. When completed, wait 10 minutes. Release steam, carefully remove jars, placing on trivets or pot holders (not directly on counters). Carefully open jars and stir well. Place lids back on and cool 20 min and then refrigerate 4 hours. Serve on scones, cakes, cheesecake, yogurt. One batch makes two cups. **not meant to be shelf stable**
