Claire Clark recipe (voted best pastry chef by restaurant magazine)
3 eggs
Zest of 1 lemon
100 grams sugar (1/2 cup)
160 grams lemon juice (2/3 cup)
1 sheet of gelatin
150 grams butter, cut into small cubes (still slightly cold) (10 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons)

Whisk the eggs, lemon zest and sugar together in a large bowl. Whisk in the lemon juice. Place the bowl over a water bath and whisk constantly until it thickens. It will start to make ribbons.

In the meantime, have the gelatin softening in ice water. Squeeze out excess water and when curd has thickened, add the gelatin to the bowl.

Strain this curd through a fine sieve into a clean bowl.

Using a submersion blender, start mixing the curd and adding the small pieces of butter. The curd will start to change in color and become lighter. Add all the butter and continue to mix it while doing it.

You can make your own condensed milk. I've seen the recipe in the message board.
