1 cup lemon or lime juice, freshly squeezed

Directions:
In a medium-sized non-reactive saucepan, heat the lemon juice, zest, sugar, butter, eggs, and egg yolks. Have a mesh strainer nearby.
Stir until the butter is melted, then whisk the mixture continuously until the mixture thickens and holds its shape when you lift some of it up with the whisk and it visibly mounds up when dropped back down over the rest of the mixture in the saucepan. It should just take a few minutes.
Pour the warm lemon curd though a strainer into a bowl (or directly into the tart shell), scraping with a rubber spatula to press it through.
