Tangy Homemade Lemon Curd is so easy to make and miles better than the jarred versions!
Having a lemon tree makes life so much better. Walking into the back yard and picking a lemon or two for the day makes me so happy. It’s life back to the basics.
When your lemon tree is overflowing you make lemon curd, because who the heck doesn’t love that sweet, tart, lemony goodness? Put it on a cake, lather it all over a scone, fill it in a tart shell.. or just devour it with a spoon. Whichever works honestly. Or fold in some whipped cream for creamy lemon dreams.
I made lemon curd last week for a lemon cake that was topped with lemon curd and fresh cream. The lemon cake was not perfect, I need to work on it. But my sister did claim it was her new favorite, so I must be close! Hopefully soon you will see the lemon cake here.
Lemon curd is simple to make just make sure you ensure enough time to chill the curd, this is why I often make it a day or two in advance. I adore making parts of recipes in advance, makes life so much easier. Like my Cinnamon Rolls that I start the night before and pretty much just bake in the am.
Stay tuned for the lemon tarts I made with this gorgeous curd! Or like I said earlier just grab a spoon or strawberry to dip into this beauty.
