finely minced zest from 3 large lemonsabout 1/4 cup fresh lemon zest
Melt the butter in a small dish in the microwave. Whisk the sugar and eggs together in a medium size glass bowl. Add the lemon juice and zest, whisk again. Slowly add the butter and whisk once more until smooth.
Microwave at 50% POWER for 1 minute. Remove from the microwave and stir. Microwave an additional minute at full power and stir again. Repeat the process, microwaving an additional 2-3 minutes and stirring after each minute. When the mixture is thick enough to coat a spoon, remove from the microwave and pour through a fine strainer to remove any flecks of zest.
The curd will thicken from pourable to spoonable consistency as it cools. Pour into glass jars, cover with lids, and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. Enjoy!
