Right out of the jar, on toast, on a crumpet or english muffin, on shortbread...ou can use it anywhere you would use jelly.

A neighbor of mine uses Lemon Curd to fill the "thumbprints" in Thumbprint Cookies.

There's also a Lime Curd that's also quite good - a little tangier than the lemon.

I like lemon curd too. Sometimes I make Jello lemon pudding with extra lemon juice. That's tasty and maybe somewhat less fat than the lemon curd - I havent compared lately so am vague there.

I tend to like it best with just a spoon.

Though lathering it on a warm cream scone comes in a close second.

Thank-you everyone for your great ideas. My grandchildren liked the graham crackers and the toast ideas so much that I now have to go out and get more!!

I have been known to eat it straight from the jar.

I had it warmed up a little and spooned over vanilla ice cream on time. Perfect dessert for a warm summers day.

Scones! I am surprised none of the Brits have suggested it. I believe it's the preferred accompaniment for scones in Scotland.

Serve it with either shortbread or pound cake and a blueberry compote.

Lemon curd also goes well with anything rasberry and pistachio, IMO.
