Like you I adore lemon curd....my mammie used to slave over a hot stove doing it for us, but this is the easiest thing in the world. Not sure what temps your micro gets up to and I first did this way back when the micro was rated at 700w....so you may have to adjust accordingly.
8 oz white sugar (granulated is OK)
3 lemons (waxed or unwaxed or anything)
3 oz butter (ok so I use salted but I suppose it should be unsalted - it won't work with marg at all)
3 eggs - brown white speckled - mine is dependant on the chooks for size but try to get them the same
I really don't stress a lot about this as you will see - now I do know that my mammie put the eggs through a sieve but I don't bother - you see what you think.
Into a large Microwaveable bowl place the butter, sugar, lemon juice and rind (I have a wee nifty kitchen tool for the rind but you can use a grater as well).
Cook uncovered at 700W (or thereabouts) for 90 seconds then stir and give it another 80 seconds if needed for the whole lot to be melted. Beat the eggs into the above mixture. Cook for a total of 5 minutes stirring after every minute. It resembles double cream/covers the back of a wooden spoon - its done.
Pop it into warm sterilized jar - this makes me two small jars one for me one for my neighbour or one large jar - just for me slightly over the pound size jar.
It has to be kept in the fridge due to the eggs, oh and needs to be eaten on EVERYTHING.........TRY not to burn your mouth when tasting it, let it cool a wee bit first eh?
