Passionfruit Butter and Luscious Lemon Curd



We have a fundraising stall on Saturday so I am working through the things I have a glut of to make items to sell. Eggs of every description, duck, turkey and chicken in abundance and still the lemon trees is loaded so I thought i would make some Lemon curd. this is a really nice recipe;

Ingredients
8 eggs (I used duck eggs) 
juice of six lemons
400 grams of sugar
200 grams of butter

Method
  I like to whisk the eggs and then strain them
Then add the strained lemon juice
cubed butter
and sugar
place in a glass or stainless steel bowl over a pot of boiling water and stir from time to time for about fifteen minutes or until you have a nice smooth consistency.
then put into sterilised jars, seal and refrigerate. It keeps well in the fridge for quite a few weeks.

I also remembered that I have loads of passion fruit pulp in the freezer and as summer fruit is almost upon us thought I should use some up. So I made some passion fruit butter. I like this recipe as it is not too sweet.
Ingredients
2 cups passionfruit pulp
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
30 grams butter
1/4 cup lemon juice.
As with the recipe above place all in a bowl over a pot of boiling water and stir from time ti time until thick. this takes longer than the Lemon curd as it doesn't have as many eggs.
