Gales Lemon Curd Deliciously tangy taste can be enjoyed spread thickly on hot buttered toast, muffins, crumpets, or British bread. Also great as a filling for Lemon Curd Tarts in pre baked casing.
Since late 19th and early 20th century England, home-style lemon curd serves as a filling for cakes, small pastries and tarts. Lemon Curd is a tasty treat with bread or scones at afternoon tea as an alternative to jam. Home lemon curd was usually made in relatively small amounts as it did not keep as well as jam. In more modern times, larger quantities became possible because of the use of refrigeration.
Lemon curds remain a popular spread for bread, scones, toast, waffles, crumpets, pancakes, or muffins. They can also be used as a flavoring for desserts or yogurt. Lemon Curd makes a delicious filling for lemon-meringue pie topped with meringue. This is still a popular dessert in Britain and the United States. Lemon curd can also have whipped cream folded into it for such uses as filling cream puffs. Curds differ from pie fillings or custards in that they contain a higher proportion of juice and zest, which gives them a more intense flavor. Also, curds containing butter have a smoother and creamier texture than both pie fillings and custards, which contain little or no butter and use cornstarch or flour for thickening.
