I had no idea what lemon curd was before I tried making it for the first time. It's not part of the culture so I had literally never tasted it. OMG. So unbelievably tasty and easy to make, it's hard to believe anyone bothers to buy it premade.
I've used it inside cupcakes to great acclaim, but the dessert I received several requests to make again was a fruit tart: Prepare lemon curd and tart crust the previous day, then on the day you want it fresh, bake the crust fully, allow to cool, spread the lemon curd all over it and cover in fresh fruit (my latest combination was strawberry and kiwi.) Such a fresh, light dessert!
