Meyer Lemon Curd (Recipe & Pictorial)
My girlfriend, Becky, is coming over on Thursday for lunch. I am super excited to see her because since the babies came along I have very little time for my girlfriends and cherish every minute with.
A fond memory I have of Becky is when we had afternoon Ladies’ Tea at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco for her birthday. They served the most amazing lemon curd so I thought I would make some for her since I am rich in lemons and eggs at the moment.
If you have not made lemon curd, you need to try it. It is so simple to make and only takes 4 ingredients! Once you make curd you can go on and make hollandaise sauce since they are very similar. My kids love it on toast as a treat, or you can pipe it into cupcakes, make a great tart, the possibilities are endless!
