"It's rich and smooth with a fresh lemon flavor. Sometimes, I'll thicken it a bit and put it in tart shells."

"This was the first time I had ever tasted or made lemon curd. The taste was fabulous! easy to make and it was so pretty. I made the curd for my friends, and was very proud to give this beautiful gift for Mother's Day."
