Lemon Curd



Lemon Juice 1# 12oz

Sugar 14oz

Cornstarch 3oz

Yolks 14oz

Cream 7oz

Gelatin 6 leaves


Bring lemon juice and half of the sugar to a simmer. Whisk the remaining sugar with the cornstarch, add the yolks, and the cream to create a paste. Slowly stream approximately 1/3 of the simmering juice to the paste to temper the paste. Pour the tempered paste back into the remaining simmering juice and continue to cook while stirring vigorously to prevent scorching. Once thick and bubbling, immediately pour into a chilled bowl to prevent overcooking. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
