Can I use bottled lemon juice instead of fresh lemons?

Can I freeze lemon curd?

Yes, lemon curd can be frozen for up to three months. Thaw it overnight in the refrigerator before using.

Can I reduce the sugar in the recipe?

The sugar in this recipe helps balance the tartness of the lemons. While you can reduce it slightly, altering the amount significantly may affect the taste and texture of the curd.

  • ¾ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp grated lemon juice
  • ¾ cup sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter cubed


  • In a saucepan that can hold about 2 quarts, combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, eggs, and butter.
  • Place the saucepan on the stove over medium-low heat.
  • Cook the mixture, stirring with a whisk, until it becomes thick enough to leave marks from the whisk. This usually takes around 6 minutes.
  • Keep an eye on the surface of the mixture. When you see the first bubble appear, it means it's thick enough.
