1. Combine the eggs, egg yolks and sugar in a heat proof bowl and whisk until smooth and the sugar is dissolved.

3. Place the bowl over a pot of boiling water or in the top of a double boiler and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture thickens.

4. This mixture will not curdle, so you don't have to worry about it overcooking a little.

5. Remove the bowl from the boiling water and add the butter.

6. Stir until the better is melted.

7. If your lemon curd is not totally smooth, strain it through a fine sieve or mesh strainer, it will be fine.

Step up your veggie dip, instead of using a conventional serving bowl, use a hollowed-out red cabbage. Not only does it add a colorful and eye-catching element to your table, but it also serves as a practical and edible vessel for your favorite dip.
