This recipe was my great-grandmother's, but she never measured anything. Fortunately, Mom watched her over the years and finally came up with the measurements.

"really quick! I used it as a dolop in meringue shells- I did not add the zest but is was nice anyway.

The texture was a bit thin for me- but I may have wisked the eggs too much. I had not caught the comment that it was more of a sauce, which it is. I was looking for a thicker curd. My remedy was 3-4 tsp corn starch in water added to the mixture and boiled 1 min more. I will use this again, great flavor"
