Lemon curd and lemon cheese
« on: May 14, 2011, 07:37:24 pm »
evening all

Firstly, does anyone know the difference between lemon curd and lemon cheese - as far as I can make out online there doesnt seem to be one. Proper lemon curd I have bought in the past seems to be creamier or softer - not really sure how to explain it.  :-\

Secondly, does anyone have a good recipe for lemon cheese?   ;D  :P :P


Cheers

I think they are the same.  Sorry, don't have a recipe as I rarely make it nowadays adn when I did it was in the microwave.  Not allowed in my diet now - far too many calories!
Always have been, always will be, a WYSIWYG - black is black, white is white - no grey in my life! But I'm mellowing in my old age

I make lemon curd and it is moreish
3oz unsalted butter
3 lemons
8oz granulated sugar
3 eggs
Put the butter, finely grated rind and juice of the lemons with the sugar into a double boiler (bowl over a pan of hot water).Stir occasionally until the sugar has dissolved and the butter has melted. Whisk eggs in a seperate bowl, strain lemon mixture into the the eggs and stir constantly over the hot water until mixture is like custard - takes about 15 mins
pour into warmed jars and seal - the curd will last for about 3 months if kept in a cool place but mine never last that long.
