Lemon curd recipes - 6 recipes

Lemon curd is not a condiment I can spread sparingly. Even after a liberal amount of this irresistible citrus burst, it’s impossible not to pick up a spoon and eat it straight from the jar. Even better, it’s so simple to make and will likely taste markedly better than anything you’ll find on the shop shelves. My best tips for this British teatime favourite, is to grate cold lemons and add a little gelatine to make it nice and thick.
