INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a non reactive saucepan bring lemon juice and half of sugar to a boil.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk eggs for 2 minutes and quickly whisk in remaining sugar. Pour half of boiling lemon syrup into eggs and beat well.
  3. Pour egg mixture into remaining lemon syrup and whisk back to a boil. Boil for 1 minute while constantly whisking and mixture has the consistency of thick bubbling honey. Remove from heat and cover with plastic food wrap.
  4. Mix gelatin with water and set aside for 5 minutes.
  5. Add gelatin and stir into above. Once incorporated add SOFT butter in small nuggets and stir with a spatula. If butter was too cold and refuses to dissolve in curd, place for a few seconds in microwave. Let cool in refrigerator.
