Don't be ridiculous. Lemon curd is an imported luxury available only in big cities with fine imported food stores, ime. It means you fancy.

(Gale's is a bit shit but it'll do in a pinch, other brands are better, homemade r0><><or's and it's pretty simple to make in the microwave)

Once my daughter started taking after her old man as an experimenter in the kitchen, she started making her own lemon curd, and has tried lime curd (A+) and grapefruit curd (C-, too mild).

Seems like the only hater in this thread is Mark G.
I vote that the thread title be changed to 'But we all love Lomon Curd, right?'.

Maybe he had a traumatic lemon curd experience as a teenager.

Ate this, with shortbread, all through an otherwise rather miserable preteen "being taken to see your mouldy oldies" rainy and bug-ridden trip through Scotland.

Lemon curd = fancy ppl? Fancy person reporting for duty!

My parents have a lemon tree, Mum makes lemon curd every year and I eat it on toast when I'm home and it is yuuuuuuuuuuuuuummy.
Also LEMON MERINGUE PIE and LEMON TART

I will aid NV in his FP'ing of lemon curd dissers.

Highland Croft lemon curd is tremendous (in spite of the "jist like mither made" uberscotchery on the packaging).

When I was like 12, this one store in my town started carrying lemon curd and would keep a little jar w a plate of crackers on the table in their foyer for you to sample because no one knew what it was. My mother made me try it. It was like delicious sweet-sour summer on a knife. Never looked back.

Also, too, it's fun to call it lemon crud.

Sounds good. Last year I made real eggnog too - aged bourbon, fresh nutmeg, just awesome. My stupid family didn't like it because it was "unconventional" and "thin" and went to buy a mix from the gas station, to which they added non-dairy cream

wtf is non-dairy cream? That's like non-bread toast?

I make lemon curd all the time for work, it is delicious. and easy!

right now I am making a Meyer Lemon Cream, you cool it down to 140 F before adding the butter, so it stays in emulsion.

1 1/4 C meyer lemon juice
2 C sugar
6 eggs
2 yolks

mix together, heat to 180 F in a double boiler, cool to 140

put into blender and slowly add 1 pound of butter

cool and serve

I use the Tartine cookbook on a regular basis, yum

that lemon cream recipe is from it.

I made lemon curd and it was surprisingly easy!
Would you all hate me if I said I didn't much like that lemon meringue pie thing from Tartine (haven't tried the tarte au citron)

kinder, Wednesday, 14 March 2012 21:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Damn I haven't had lemon meringue pie in such a long time.

in my experience the Tartine lemon merinque is serviceable but not spectacular, also does not age well after the first day.

Flat Of NAGLs (sleeve), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 21:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

I haven't had the meringue but then I'm not really much of a meringue fan

L'ennui, cette maladie de tous les (Michael White), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 22:01 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's troo that lemon curd codes somewhat "fancy" in the US. not sure why, as lemon bars and meringue pies are common & very similar. always want it to be a bit more astringent.

Fozzy Osbourne (contenderizer), Wednesday, 14 March 2012 22:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Meringue needs to be eaten fresh the same day. Loses it's 'fluff' if it's left longer.

Lemon curd is pretty easy to make, fwiw. Not pesto easy, but.

I tell you what I really like: donuts with lemon curd filling instead of jam.

Sometimes if I was depressed after a day at work in my old IT support hell job I'd buy four and eat them in one evening.
