Lemon Curd Experiment

A while back, I decided to make lemon curd.

Now, I am one of those people who does NOT like lemon-y desserts (eeew!), so the thought of producing lemon curd kind of made me wince a little.  However, more than anything else, I was curious if I *could* do it.

Cue THIS recipe.  This is basically a bunch of lemon with agave, cornstarch, and egg yolks.

Everything started off so watery and then finally got to this:

My little sister took this picture of me looking pretty darn pleased about my "accomplishment."  She thinks I'd be too embarrassed to post such a photo -- sweats and all.

As for the curd itself -- it was actually not that "bad."  It had lemon flavor but was not sickening.  I gave this to "The Ukrainian" to eat with bread, though next time, I might actually put it into a tart or something.

How do you feel about lemon-y desserts?

  1. I have no clue what a person does with curd. Eat it with whey? :)
