Le mon coeur
It doesn’t taste at all like the curds in supermarkets.`
The higher the quality of the ingredients, the better the dish will be for your taste and health. You can replace the lemons or some of them by oranges. It is also super yummy.
You need for these two jars: 3 large juicy lemon, 200g sugar, 150g unsalted butter and 6 eggs.
1. Put the grated lemon rind with the sugar in a bowl. No need for grated fingers. 2. In another bowl, whisk the lemon juice together with the eggs.
3. Pour this mixture over the sugar/lemon rinds and add the butter cut into pieces. 4. Place the bowl over a pan of barely simmering water. 5. Stir regularly without burning yourself till thickened (about 20 minutes). 6. Cool the curd into jars, face down.
You can eat the curd on a slice of bread or on brioches or on muffins, etc. You can also use it as a filling for lemon tarts. I like it mixed with yogurt inside a crêpe. I also use it as a topping for my cakes.
