Lemon Curd (or Lemon Butter) is an old-fashioned citrus preserve. Fresh lemon juice and butter are combined with eggs and sugar to create a deliciously smooth and rich Lemon Conserve. Use Lemon Curd to fill a Lemon Meringue Pie, a filling for a cake, as a spread for sandwiches or toast or as a topping for ice cream. Try it today - you'll love it!
