Squeezing a few citrus recipes into the family menus is easy for Don's wife, Mary. She shares her popular recipe for Lemon Curd. "This special spread is absolutely delightful," Mary confirms. "It's rich and smooth with a fresh lemon flavor. Sometimes, I'll thicken it a bit and put it in tart shells."
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 cup butter, melted
- 2/3 cup lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons grated lemon peel
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
