Easy Lemon Curd in Se7en Steps…

June 25th, 2009 · 11 Comments

There is nothing that beats the yummy lemony taste of Lemon Curd, which is basically a lemon flavored custard. You can store it in the fridge for weeks and you can add it to anything that needs a bit of bite. It is great straight on a piece of toast, on scones, swirled in muffin mix, as a pancake topping, between cake layers, to make lemon meringue pie, I could go on but I’ll stop!!! Well you could also gift this – it makes a brilliant gift if you are going out to a meal at friends and they say “Don’t bring anything!” Okay – I will stop, lets get onto the recipe:
