       Title: Lemon Curd
  Categories: Spreads, Pies, Canning, Gift, Lemon
       Yield: 4 servings
  
     1/2 c  (1 stick) butter
   1 1/2 c  Sugar
   1 1/4 c  Strained fresh lemon juice
       4    Eggs
       2 tb Grated lemon zest
  
   This versatile sauce is delicious spread on English muffins, makes a
   wonderful cake or pie filling and is also an easy way to enhance plain
   yogurt.  It has a tendency to darken after about 2 months, so it is
   best to make only what you can use within that length of time.
   
   Makes about 4 1/2-pint jars
   
   Melt butter in top of double boiler over simmering water.  Add
   remaining ingredients and blend well.  Continue cooking, stirring
   frequently, until thick and smooth, about 25 to 30 minutes. Ladle
   into sterilized jars and seal with lids.
