This is a great lemon curd recipe using fresh lemon and eggs. It's bright, thick, and full of lemon flavor.

In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks, whole egg, and sugar until well combined. Whisk in the lemon juice and lemon zest.

Place the bowl in the microwave and cook in 40-second to 1-minute increments, stirring each time for around 3-4 minutes in total.

Stir the butter through the hot lemon mixture and stir until smooth.

Pour the finished curd through a sieve into clean jars. It will thicken as it cools. Once cooled, store it in the fridge.
