Lemon Curd is the tops!
A recipe for Lemon Curd proved to be a winning formula to get Team Lemon Segments into the top 12 entries at the recent Enterprise Fair at Doncaster College and University Centre, organised with the support of Young Enterprise. Team members were students following an Independent Living Life Skills course. Their tutor explained that their experience in the competition has hugely lifted their confidence, self awareness and business skills.
The students made Lemon Curd under hygienically controlled conditions to Food Safety standards, worked out costings and profit margins and organised a Trade stand to display their products. It looked fantastic!
Here’s their amazing recipe :
4 eggs well beaten
4 lemons juice and zest
Heat all ingredients together in a bowl over hot water until thick (coats back of spoon). Allow to cool. Pour into sterilised jars. Cover and label. Store in the fridge for up to 6 months. Makes 2 x 1lb/450g jars.
With no colourings, additives or e-numbers in sight, the recipe proved to be a simple formula with a winning taste. I’m delighted they’ve agreed to share their recipe here with you. Congratulations to Team Lemon Segments! Grandma Abson would have been very proud of them! Make a jar or two and see for yourself !
