Lemon Curd in the Microwave – Yes, it’s a (really good) thing
So, I’ve been using a lot of lemon zest for this and that lately and had a total of 3 lemons sans zest. It was time to use some lemon juice. Thank you to Ioanna Limberopoulou of Ioanna’s Notebook for this super easy, super fast, super delicious lemon curd recipe. I live in fear of links breaking so I’ve put the English translation below and I did leave out a few of Ioanna’s steps (they were not necessary to acheive a great finished produce IMHO).
I ended up using the juice of one Cara Cara orange to make up the 1 C of lemon juice and I only had one lemon with the zest still on so I didn’t quite follow the recipe but it still turned out well.
I’ve got a bunch of limes in the fridge as well and I think I might just give this a go with lime juice to see what happens. I can see folding the curd into a light ricotta cream or good ol’ whipped cream for a light dessert or using it as the base for a fruit flan. Speaking of flan…hmmm that’s next.
