Lemon Curd

A Preserve Widely Enjoyed

Welcome to the Yourcounty lemon curd recipe. This is very simple preserve to make in the microwave. It uses fresh ingredients and so should be kept in the fridge, it will only last for a couple of weeks, but makes a lovely gift. Times are for a 600w microwave and should be adjusted for different power levels. At one time Lemon Curd sandwiches would be regarded as a treat, perhaps in the same way that some people enjoy Nutella sandwiches today. This is just one of the recipes provided from and for local users, we have a great many others linked from the Kentish Recipe Directory.
