Lemon curd is one of those little indulgences that I always love. The smooth, custardy curd is delicious whether you eat it with a spoon or incorporate it into a recipe. Lemon curd is most often made with ordinary lemons, but meyer lemons make an amazing lemon curd and it is well worth going out of your way to pick some up and give that variation a try. I’m sharing my recipe for Easy Homemade Meyer Lemon Curd over at the Craftsy blog (it’s free!), so you can follow the step-by-step pictures and treat yourself with a freshly made batch at home.
One of my pet peeves with lemon curd recipes is that they call for a number of lemons instead of a quantity of lemon juice. This is particularly difficult with meyer lemons, which tend to be on the smaller side but come in a range of sizes. My recipe uses a specific amount of lemon juice, so you know exactly how much you need to ensure the recipe turns out perfectly every time you make it.
