LEMON CUSTARD INGREDIENTS:
* I used about a 1/4 of this recipe. But it’s great to have for another recipe or breakfast!
3 large eggs
1 egg yolk
1 cup (200g) sugar
2/3 cup (160mL) lemon juice, FRESH
6 Tbsp (90g) butter, cubed
zest of 1 medium lemon
About 10 vanilla wafers, finely chopped
2 egg whites
1/2 cup (100g) sugar
1/8 tsp (2.5g) cream of tartar
1/2 tsp (5mL) vanilla extract
To a double boiler, add in your eggs, egg yolk, sugar, and lemon juice. Whisk your ingredients together for at least 15 minutes, consistently. If you don’t consistently whisk the mixture, the bottom will get too hot and the eggs will cook too much and scramble in the mixture. Bring the mixture up to 170F and it has thickened up. If you don’t have a candy thermometer, do not worry about it. Once the liquid has thickened up, it has reached the desired temperature.
Add your custard through a sieve to get out any lumps. Then whisk in your butter, a few cubes at a time, until all the butter has been melted into the custard. Next add in your lemon zest.
Add some plastic wrap to the bowl, making sure to push it all the way down to the custard, so a layer does not form on the custard. Let chill in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.
