    I love lemon curd and have an awesome recipe however things have changed a lot in my life since the last time I made it. Instead of using my own egg yolks for the curd I now have a pint jar of yolks that my roommate who only eats egg whites as been freezing every time he cooks eggs to use. I was wondering if anyone had an idea what the measurement of a regular egg yolk was or about how many yolks to a pint? Also the yolks are coming from his bantams (not that it makes a difference in their current from) but for future reference how many bantam eggs does it take to equal a regular egg. Thanks

    1 large egg yolk is 3 and 1/2 teaspoons (the same as 1tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon) or .65 oz. If you have a kitchen scale, you can multiple the number of yolks you need by .65, otherwise, you can measure them out.
    Good luck! Lemon curd is delicious! [​IMG]
