pear and strawberries with lemon curd.jpg

oh my gosh....this is so yummy
Recipe by Anna Olson from Sugar

Lemon Curd

Ingredients
• 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
• 3 eggs
• 1 egg yolk
• 1/2 cup sugar (i used 1/4 cup of powdered splenda)
• 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
• 1 tsp lemon zest

Method

Whisk together lemon juice, eggs and yolk, and sugar. Whisk in butter and add lemon zest. Place bowl over a pot of simmering water and whisk steadily, but gently, until curd becomes thick and pale and creamy, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and chill until ready to use.

I just useed it as a dip/sauce for some very non ripe pear and a few strawberries...I think I might have to work it into a few other things like a topping for cheesecake, a lemon meringue pie with an almond crust, mmmm maybe ice cream...I'm in heaven

I'm thinking of somekind of pie crust made with ground nuts and putting your lemon curd in and then merignue on top.

This is something I used to make years ago - hadn't thought of it lately as a diabetes-friendly food! Thanks for the reminder! It makes good filling for pies & tarts, but I guess I prob'ly ate it with a spoon right outta the bowl more often that not!

I make a low carb doughnut with whey powder. I could see filling it with lemon curd. OMG, my mouth is drooling.

Shanny I've never made it before as the only stuff I'd tried was sickly sweet...this was so tart it was yum!

Jwags I was shocked at how much I liked it...it's a nice fresh alternative to the chocolate recipes...
