Lemon curd is so much easier to make than I thought it would be and it's ready within minutes.
It is a heavenly, sweet yet tart, citrus, velvety custard-like texture that is a British 'Tea-Time' favorite, mainly used as a spread on scones, breads, toast or used as a filling in desserts.
I got this awesome recipe from Fig Jam and Lime Cordial and it IS amazing! I was intimidated to make this, but it's way too easy. *Win* We like easy! You should really give it a try.
Yummy, yummy and insanely lemony!
