                Light  Double Lemon Curd

Curd's are one my favoriter's thing's of all time second to chocolate,curd is yummy
 the lovely combination of a thick and custardy, silky smooth  and a bright, zesty flavor.
make me and other  citrus lover's very happy that is the upside of  curd.

The downside of it is the rich consistency of lemon and other curd's come from the fat,that why
i needed a recipe for a lighter and  healther curd i find it on it a low fat lemon curd
by Alice Medrich from her book  Chocolate and the Art of Low Fat Desserts  at first i did not believe
it so as i try anything once befor i say i don't like something i try it and i been addicted ever since it
has a better and more lemonly favoriter did anyother curd i have ever had it's easy to make as long as you have  fresh lemons around and can be easy  doubled i  doubled mine so  here it is.

                                                  light Doubled Lemon Curd
                                               4 tsp lemon zest has to be fresh
                                                2   large egg's room temperature
                                                        1 tsp vanilla extract
                                                    10 TBSP  sugar 4  1/8 oz
                                             2/3 cup cup strained, fresh lemon juice

I haved 2 cup's of lemon juice so i did this 3 time's and get 4 jar's of lemonly curd goodness

In a  sauce pan, over medium heat, combine sugar and lemon juice. Add zest and stir until sugar is dissolved completely.
In a medium bowl, lightly beat egg. Whisking constantly (or with an electric mixer on low), very slowly stream the hot lemon-sugar syrup into the egg. Beat for 2 minutes (only 1 if you’re using a mixer), then transfer back into the saucepan by pouring the mixture through a sieve.
Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the curd just comes to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
Transfer to a small airtight container and store in the fridge.
