Another recipe from Mum's scribbled cookery notes, seeing the recipe now, I'm amazed to see how simple it was for her to make such a great staple.

  1. Beat the eggs and add to the top pan of a bain-marie (double-boiler), with the remaining ingredients. A bowl over a pan of simmering water will do if you don't have a bain-marie
  2. Stir until the sugar has dissolved.
  3. Continue gently heating and stirring as the curd thickens. Its ready when it is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon.
  4. Pour into hot, sterilised jam jars and seal properly.
