  1. In a medium sauce pan, combine eggs, sugar, fresh lemon juice and finely grated lemon zest. Whisk constantly while cooking over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil; then turn heat to low and continue whisking. Cook an additional 7-10 minutes. Remove from heat, whisk in the butter and immediately pour sauce through a fine strainer or sieve to remove any lumps. Cover and chill in the refrigerater for at least 2 hours. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Use as a filling for a dessert, or a sauce over a dessert, or a spread like a jam.
