Lemon Curd

Today’s British Pantry features oft-neglected cousin of jam and jelly that deserves its turn in the spotlight. So today’s post is all about the sharp, sweet, buttery spread that is Lemon Curd.

Taking all the goodness that a lemon has to offer, lemon curd mixes the juice and zest with sugar and butter. After just the right amount of heating and stirring, you end up with a custard-like sauce that explodes into an intense spectrum of flavors upon contact with the tongue.

Traditionally served with bread or scones for afternoon tea, it works just as well in a lemon meringue pie. And if you don’t want to make it at home, we sell the very best stuff England has to offer from the fabulous preserve makers at Tiptree’s. Give us a call on 212-989-9735, or send us an email at info@teaandsympathynewyork.com if you’d like us to ship this or other British products to you.
