    NurseJaney's Note:

    We ALL have had lemon curd - on scones, biscuits, and tarts, but this is an altogether different taste sensation. It isn't really tart (but definitely NOT sweet. Before you start. sterilize enough small jars with metal caps, (OLD jelly jars) - to hold 4 cups of curd. I usually just put them through the dishwasher on HOT, and leave them in there to stay warm. Will hold in refrigerator about 2 weeks.

      What a super treat Nurse Janey. Sweet, tart, tangy, simply delicious. We enjoyed this on scones. I can't wait to try it one sponge cake...yummmmm. I made 1'/2 the recipe it was very quick and easy. I used 5 large limes. It tastes better than the ones you get in the store. This is my new go to recipe, thanks so much for sharing.

      I did two batches of this. I love lime and this is very good. Tart, sour and sweet. I did not need so many limes as listed to get the amount of juice needed. I did add a drop of green food coloring so it looked like lime curd not lemon. I will make this again. Will be great for Christmas baskets. Thx
