FOR LOVE OF LEMONS
Lemon curd is a dessert spread that is usually made from citrus fruit, such as lemons, limes, or oranges. It originated in 19th century England, and was an actual curd. Lemon would be used to acidify cream and form curds, which were then separated from the whey with a cheesecloth.
Modern lemon curd is now made with the addition of butter and eggs, and has a more of a velvety custard consistency.
