When life gives you lemons...


you could always make lemon curd =)

After tasting the most gorgeous tarts last week I decided that I needed to find a good lemon curd recipe so that I could recreate the tasty little treats for myself at home.

There are heaps of recipes around - after a bit of reading I decided on this one.
It made exactly one little jar, and is just delicious.

I had planned on using some to sandwich chocolate macarons together, but I think it might be too runny...



Hmmm, on to plan B....

  2. I'm obviously not as well brought up as GK. My first thought was "lick the plate".

  4. Lemon curd is one of my favourite things to eat, but I've never made it. Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

  5. This might sound like a daft question, but is lemon curd the same as lemon butter?
