      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.
