No, never have. This one is so good, I don't play with it. Shrek would have a fit.

Got a bunch of Costco limes, and used some to make lime curd. OMG. I used agave nectar instead of sugar, but it was wicked good!

How much Agave did you use in place of the sugar?

I just kept adding agave and tasting. I think it was about half a cup. I did increase the limes to 6, and eggs to 4, along with a stick of butter.

Just retread this thread for fun. Have not yet made pastries using home made lemon curd. I have tomorrow off of work, and need to go to the store in the morning. I will pick up lemons. I will be dreaming about lemons tonight!

Pst! Over here. Folks, when lemons go on sale, get a bunch, take the zest off with your micro plane and squeeze the heck out of the lemons.

Tightly wrap the zest in one teaspoons each. Measure by tablespoons the juice into ice cube trays. When solid, place in a zippy bag. Mark the bag so you know how much each cube is. Voilą! Lemon Curd year round and you have already done the hard work. And don't forget Lemon Meringue pie!

I don't know about the rest of you, but I like the pulp of the citrus in with my juice. I think it adds additional flavor and texture. I also have one of the old glass juicers like my mother had. It gets quite a workout in my kitchen.

I also do this with Florida oranges. They give the most juice. (California oranges are mostly for eating.) But you do have to be careful with getting the zest from them. Their rinds often leave something to be desired in the beauty department. I also have on hand orange and lemon extract.

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
