    I first fell in love with Lemon curd in Europe so whenever possible, I would pick up a jar. There are a lot of recipes available, but this recipe is absolutely the best one..its easy and tasty without the bitterness the packaged curd always seem to have. We first made this recipe to put between the layers of a birthday cake, and it was perfect and delicious. Now, I always keep a container in the refridgerator for buttered toast and bagels. Enjoy this one, it's a winner.
