Lemon Curd

lemon curd recipe

My friend Marguerite has a Meyer lemon tree that produces literally hundreds of lemons each winter. Meyer lemons have such a distinctive flavor. The Meyer lemon is a cross between a mandarin and a lemon. Slightly sweet and acidic all at the same time. A perfectly balanced citrus fruit. Each year my generous friend Marguerite not only gives me a basket of fresh lemons, but also brings me a perfectly wrapped and ribboned little jar of fresh Meyer lemon curd. You do not have to have Meyer lemons to make this curd. Any lemons that you grow, find at the farmers market or buy from your supermarket will work just fine.
