Yes, this is the ultimate lemon curd. Perfect texture, taste and colour. Very easy to make. Excellent directions. The final cooking temp is 190*F if anyone wants to use a thermometer.

This is an excellent base recipe for fruit curds. The lemon was outstanding, nicely smooth and tart. I also made lime curd: lime juice and zest were used in equal amounts for the lemon; sugar was decreased to 1/2 cup; final temp was 185-degrees. And a blood orange curd: 1 cup of blood orange juice was reduced in the microwave by half; same amount of zest was used; sugar was decreased to 1/2 cup, and final temp again was 185-degrees. I'm hard-pressed to say which I liked the best. Rock on.

This is definately over the top. I am using it for the filling of one of the layers of the white sour cream almond wedding cake. It is the best lemon curd recipe online.

Delcious, easy, and accurate. This makes a nice, thick curd - perfect for spreading on cakes as a filling. Decadent and very, very tasty.

I have never made curd before. This was my first attempt and it worked great. Used it as a filling between 2 layers of sponge cake with some whipped cream. I served this at a luncheon at work and everyone loved it. It was the perfect cool & sweet ending to a spicy mexican meal that I served.
