Passionfruit Curd

Ingredients

125 grams unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons lemon zest
4 eggs, lightly beaten
pulp of 6 passionfruit

Preparation

1
Place all ingredients in the top of a double boiler and cook over gentle heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until the mixture thickens. To test if mixture is thick enough, remove spoon and draw a finger down the back of the spoon. If the curd is cooked, the mixture on the spoon will remain in place. If still runny, then cook further until successfully tested.
2
To cook in the microwave, place all ingredients in a large microwave-safe bowl and stir (do not beat) with a balloon whisk. Cook on HIGH for 2 minutes, then remove and stir with whisk. Continue cooking for no more than 1 minutes at a time until mixture is starting to thicken, always stirring in between. As mixture thickens, cook in 30 second bursts to prevent over- cooking.
3
When curd is complete, pour into sterilized jars, seal immediately and allow to cool. Store in refrigerator and use within a few weeks
