If you don’t like lemons, there’s nothing for you here today. Unless you like limes. If you don’t like lemons and you don’t like limes, I hope you like oranges, although this post won’t help you with those. If you don’t like lemons, limes, or oranges, I hope you like to take Vitamin C in tablet form because scurvy is seriously not funny.
Anyway. Would you like to know how to have sunshine on a cloudy day? When it’s cold outside, you’ll have the month of May? What can make me feel this way, you’re asking?
No, not lemon curdle, lemon curd – an important difference. I know, curd might not immediately ring your culinary bell but here’s what it means: spreadable lemony goodness made with egg yolks, sugar and butter. (You can also use limes, but I love lemon curd so much I haven’t felt the need to branch out yet.) I got some Meyer lemons a couple weeks ago and, among other things, made lemon curd using this recipe from Martha Stewart.
It might seem kind of fancy-pantsy but it’s actually pretty easy. Sunshine in a jar! Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
