Set up a bain marie (a bowl sat on top of a pot of gently simmering water without touching the water onto the bowl)
Juice and zest the lemons and add the sugar and butter and gently stir the mixture until all of the butter and sugar has melted
Whisk the eggs before stirring into the mixture to cook for 15 minutes
Once the mixture is thick and you can run your finger down a spoon and leave a path leave aside to cool before transferring into jars for refridgeration.
Orange and Lime curds could be made in a similar fashion to this replacing the fruit, oranges might need boiling to a more concentrated flavour first with double the number of oranges juiced.
