Recipes for Lemon Curd and Limoncello
Recipe for lemon curd made in the Vitamix
It makes about three cups
6 small eggs at room temperature
½ cup fresh lemon juice
1 TBS lemon zest
1 cup sugar
a pinch of salt
½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature cut into pieces
Recipe for Limocello:
I used Giada De Laurentil’s recipe for limoncello . I liked it but I don’t really have any comparison since I never have had limoncello before. I will make it again when I have more lemons and return from my trip. Any help for this recipe is greatly appreciated.
When making the recipe make sure you remove as much of the pith from the lemon peel as possible.

Directions for the lemon curd:
Put the first five ingredients in the Vitamix. Begin at Variable 1 and gradually increase to 10. Blend for about three minutes. When the mixture gets hot keep checking with a thermometer and continue to blend for another few minutes until the thermometer reads 160 degrees. Now your eggs are safe. Add the butter and blend until smooth for about 10 seconds.
Pour the curd into some jars and cool overnight in the fridge.
