Hello, I was wondering does anyone have a yolks only lemon curd recipe that they would be willing to share with me? I am looking to use up some excess egg yolks, and am looking for a curd that is slightly thicker.

I did a search and was having difficulty in finding an yolks only recipe...

Thanks in advance,

R.

we make this recipe all the time . i like to actually wisk it vigorously while it comes to a low boil (after the egg yolks have been added) then it comes out nice and thick after straining.

I know. I shake my head when I see people trying to make lemon curd over a double boiler........!
i believe its breaking all the rules, but it comes out great!
