Lemon Curd making with Persil! (its ok its not an ingredient!) ;)

We were recently sent some goodies from Persil to make our own jam.  

We still have a mass of apple and blackberry jam from my mum so we decided to make lemoncurd instead.  This is one of the easiest and tastiest things to make! 

All you need is

4 eggs
2 egg yolks
250g Sugar
110g butter
zest & juice of 4 lemons
pinch of salt

Add the butter, sugar, salt, zest and juice together in a bowl over a pan of hot water (do not let it boil) and stir continually until the butter is melted (cut it into small blocks which will melt faster) 

In a seperate bowl, use a fork and combine the eggs and yolks. Pour into the bowl over the pan and stir regularly to stop the egg from scrambling. 

Keep over the low heat, stiring regularly for approx 10 minutes or until the lemon curd starts to coat the back of a spoon. 

Sieve into jars and leave to cool completely before topping with a circle of greaseproof paper.

They will keep for 7 days in the fridge.

Given the fact i have 3 little ones who like to get messy in the kitchen we knew that these Dual Action capsules were going to be put to the test!  I was dubious i must admit, I love Persil as it is and didnt think anything was better than the Persil tablets.....boy was i wrong!  

The scent and the power that these little gems pack are second to none!  No need for fabric softener or additional expensive stain removers.

Convenience in a Capsule

Life experience makes up for a lot of mess and dirt, but thanks to the convenient new Persil Dual Action capsules, laundry will be the last of your worries. Simply place the capsule in the empty drum, add your laundry and start the wash- it couldn’t get any easier. Three easy steps for one unbeatable result. Unbeatable Performance or Your Money Back

Persil are so confident in the astonishing results of the NEW Dual Action Capsules, that they are even offering a money back guarantee. So let your kids get as messy, mucky and playful as they like and let Persil do the dirty work by cleaning the clothes afterwards- or your money back!

The new Capsules, available in both 17 and 28 wash packs, work with two separate ‘compartments’:·         The microgranules (stain removal powder) contain an active ingredient that works as a stain remover on bleachable stains such as black tea, red wine, black coffee, strawberry jam and blackcurrant juice.

Highly recommended! 

I hope you enjoy the recipe and let me know if you try these capsules and what you think!
