a jar of lemon curd is my fave (guest post from natalie)

June 5, 2012

I had a baby so I’ve invited some fave guests to take over for me while I spend time with the little guy. Today’s post is from the southern hostess more charming than Paula Deen, Natalie of The Soho.

This is the kind of gift I love to hand out to people. That gorgeous pale shade of yellow will brighten anyone’s day, and it always elicits an “Ooo, wow!” or a “You made this?” All you need is lemon, sugar, eggs, butter and a pretty container to put it in.

This recipe from Gourmet magazine is simple, fast and produces delicious results. You’ll want to pour the finished curd through a sieve to get rid of any pulp or clumps and to make yourself appear flawless.

Lemon curd is tart, creamy and complements so many things. Slather it on pancakes or crepes, drizzle it over vanilla ice cream, make a lemon curd tart, you can even spread it on toast. Pretty much any vehicle to deliver the lemon curd to your mouth is acceptable.
