I have to get started on my pumpkin pie skills I'm thinking pecan crust this year.

Oh my. OH MY! I made PF's recipe using one lime and one egg, with previously grated lemon rind. I had to rip myself away from the bowl! Dang this stuff's good! And strainer? We don't need no stinkin' strainer!

And now it's gone.

And cholesterol and blood pressure! I went back into the kitchen to have another spoonful, and DH had already cleaned out the ss bowl. Made my blood pressure rise.

I would bet it would be good with any citrus. I am considering ruby grapefruit.

Yes, just be careful you don't get ANY pith in it, that makes it very bitter...almost ruined a batch of grapefruit. Kumquat is really good , too.

Fear not. The only pith would be me smacking DH's hand when he tried to get the remains. Would really pith me off.

This is better than a bottle, PF, and easily made in small quantities! Thanks!

butter, egg, lemon, recipe

Lemon Curd a la PF Lemon Curd Recipe: 3 large eggs 1/3 cup (80 ml) fresh lemon juice (2-3 lemons) (do not use the bottled lemon juice) 1 tablespoon (4 grams) finely shredded lemon zest 3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated white sugar 4 tablespoons (56 grams) unsalted butter, at room temperature and cut into small pieces In a stainless steel bowl placed over a saucepan of simmering water ,whisk together the eggs, sugar, and lemon juice until blended. Cook, stirring constantly (to prevent it from curdling), until the mixture becomes thick (like sour cream or a hollandaise sauce) (160 degrees F or 71 degrees C).This will take approximately 10 minutes. Remove from heat and immediately pour through a fine strainer to remove any lumps. Cut the butter into small pieces and whisk into the mixture until the butter has melted. Add the lemon zest and let cool. The lemon curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Cover immediately (so a skin doesn't form) and refrigerate for up to a week. Makes 1 1/2 cups (360 ml). 3 stars 1 reviews
