From Lemons to Curd

Hello :) My sweet friend Nadine, hosted a wonderful Tea Party. I decided to make Lemon Curd, using Meyer Lemons. And give one to each friend. I love Lemons, but they don't like me so much. Lemons did not always dislike me. It all happened when I was pregnant with my first son. I do try them every now and then to see if they have changed their mind, but so far they haven't. I was able to have a little taste and it was so yummy! This would be a wonderful gift to give along with some homemade scones, some tea bags, honey, or sugar cubes, pretty tea cup, and a little spoon ( look at my post from 9/9/9 for scone recipe). The Lemon Curd recipe is from The Barefoot Contessa (Ina Garten).

Don't you just love the bright yellow color of Lemons and their fresh scent! Citrus scented lotions and soaps are my favorite. I'm still trying to find a wonderfully citrus scented perfume.

Beautiful YELLOW! I love my kitchen gadgets!

As the curd is cooking it gets thicker, brighter, and more beautiful!

For the recipe click here. I added sugar to taste and added more lemon juice.

Aren't those the most adorable labels! They add the perfect touch to my homemade Meyer Lemon Curd! All dressed up and ready to be gifted.

  1. Your jars look fabulous, Aimee! I LOVE homemade lemon curd--so sorry you can't enjoy it more--such a shame!

    Hope you're having a wonderful day, my friend!


  2. I LOVE lemons too..that curd is so pretty..I could eat it right out of the jar! :D

  3. I love lemon curd! It is so expensive to buy but very easy and inexpensive to make. Such cute little jars, they really would make beautiful gifts:>)

  4. Aimee, what a cute idea for a little gift. The curd looks so pretty in the jar, and the labels just make it even more special. I'm sure your friends were delighted with this gift. Thanks for sharing this idea. laurie

  5. What a wonderful gift! I should make a bunch of these this winter for giving through the year. Our lemon tree is almost breaking from the weight of the fruit this year!

  6. Look at the way my friend Wesley Virgin's biography starts with this SHOCKING and controversial VIDEO.

    You see, Wesley was in the military-and shortly after leaving-he revealed hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the government and others used to obtain everything they want.

    These are the same SECRETS lots of famous people (notably those who "became famous out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become wealthy and famous.

    You probably know how you only use 10% of your brain.

    That's because the majority of your brainpower is UNCONSCIOUS.

    Maybe this expression has even taken place INSIDE OF YOUR very own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head about seven years ago, while driving an unlicensed, beat-up trash bucket of a car without a license and with $3 on his debit card.

    "I'm absolutely fed up with going through life check to check! Why can't I become successful?"

    You've taken part in those types of thoughts, right?

    Your success story is going to be written. You just have to take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
