Mrs Horton rather likes a spot of lemon curd on her drop scones.
Here’s a favourite recipe…
8 oz caster sugar
4 oz butter
• In a bowl, grate the rind from the lemons,
Squeeze the juice from the lemons and
add the sugar and butter.
• Beat eggs well.
• Put and eggs in a bowl.
• Heat over simmering water until
• Spoon into a sterilised jar and seal.
