LEMON CURD

MAKES APPROX. 400ML | GLUTEN FREE | 10 MINS PREP | 20 MINS COOKING

Oh lemon curd, how I love thee! In my eyes, this is one of life’s most delicious creations. I’ve tried and tested so many methods, I’ve read recipe after recipe, I’ve tweaked and I’ve tampered. So now my friends, I believe this is my secrete recipe to making the perfect curd. I’ve eliminated the fuss to make it as straightforward as possible. Divide or multiply the recipe to suit whatever it is you’re cooking. If you need suggestions on how or where to apply this silky, golden mixture of the gods - why not try slathering spoonfuls on pikelets, scones, croissants, filling tart cases, topping pavlovas or folded through whipped cream. It also makes really good friends with all the berries.
