For some reason I’ve only eaten steak on the rare occasion. It isn’t that I dislike steak, it’s just that I like chicken and fish considerably more. I even went a year without eating beef or pork, and only started up again because at the end of that year I happened upon a blood drive and they almost wouldn’t allow me to contribute because I was borderline anemic.

This lemon curd has just the right amount of tart citrus flavor, and is sweet but not too sweet. It’s also very easy to make.

I used to only make lemon curd when I was going to bake a lemon meringue pie, or a lemon tart, but I eventually learned the error of my ways. This is amazing on toast and (I’m a little embarrassed to admit) pretty fantastic straight out of the jar. Continue reading
