Homemade Lemon Curd is a burst of citrus flavor that’s scrumptious with everything from pies to pancakes!
Lemon is my go to citrus flavor. While I love grapefruit, orange & lime in my cocktails, for desserts and breakfast it’s all about lemon! Bright, fresh lemon. One of my favorite way to add lemon to these dishes is lemon curd. It’s easy to make and keeps in the fridge for a couple weeks…if it lasts that long.
So this whole fruit curd business. It’s not exactly a custard, like most people might think. While the consistency it similar, curds are super fruit forward giving an intense flavor you don’t get in custards or pie fillings. You can also take this basic recipe a substitute in your favorite citrus flavors like orange, lime, grapefruit, blood orange, or tangerine!
Curds have been popular for servings high tea, filling cakes, and more! You can even fold it into your whipped cream or no bake cheesecake for a taste that’s out of this world! Personally, I like my lemon curd over some blueberry pancakes or waffles, but there’s no wrong way to enjoy it.
