We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Lemon Curd from Meyer Lemons

I just finished making lemon curd from my meyer lemons. I used a recipe from Gourmet magazine  that called for 3-4 meyer lemons that would make 1/2 cup of juice. In my case, 4 lemons made a cup of juice. So I doubled the recipe, and plan to freeze leftover curd. It took about 30 minutes for the lemon curd to come up to 160 degrees. So the 5 minutes the recipe states for whisking the curd to 160 degrees is a bit optimistic.  So be patient. It tastes delicious, and my husband loves it.

So now I need to figure out what to do with the last 5 meyer lemons I have left on my tree.

  1. We just bought some lemon curd. How wonderful to make your own. Thanks for the link. We haven't bought a meyer lemon tree yet, was told by the garden center guy that it's best to get them in Spring, or at least once danger of frost/freezing is over since they should be in the ground after you buy them. Have wanted a meyer lemon for ages. I know exactly what I want to make first! ha.

    Thanks!! Happy Holidays!!
