Chef John's Lighter Lemon Curd
February 27, 2014

First of all, I'd never had lemon curd before. Truth be told, up until a couple of years ago, I was a lemon dessert hater; ever since I first tasted lemon meringue pie that my grandmother just loved... Anyhow, this recipe and and the method is flawless. No need to mix the butter with the lemon eggs and sugar in a mixer first as I read else where. I used lime instead of lemon (a little less than 1/2 cup fresh squeezed key lime juice) and added a little water (too much actually, instead of 2/3 cup liquid I accidentally used 3/4 cup liquid). Anyhow this worked perfectly, and this is coming from someone who likes to cook, but had never made lemon curd or hollandaise (sp) sauce.
