  1. Combine lemon zest and sugar in a food processor with a steel blade. Process until the zest is very fine, about 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Add the eggs, one at a time, on low speed.
  4. Add lemon juice and salt. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined.
  5. Pour the mixture into a heavy saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk.
  6. Continue to stir until the mixture has thickened, about 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and strain into a glass bowl or jar.
  8. Allow to cool completely before serving.
  9. Store lemon curd in an airtight glass container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
