Lemon Curd Again

Lemon Curd again my darlings. Once you make lemon curd you are forever in love with it and will make it again and again.
 I use Southern Living's recipe except I do not cook it in a microwave. Stirring that luscious mixture on the stove is soothing to me. I do not own a microwave. Another freaky thing about me.

In Olive Out news my first product review will post tomorrow with a BlogHer sponsored giveaway. The producers at BlogHer are wonderful. I ask many many questions and they never tire of answering them. Please visit tomorrow and enter the giveaway.

I wish you all could come over 
and have lemon curd and breakfast cookies with me.


  1. i'll be over shortly. each time you talk about lemons - i think maybe or how could i live on only lemons for the rest of my life? would i have teeth? i love lemons. they are too perfect. i need to check the recipe out.

    happy day to you. ( :

  2. Hi Olive, I’ve never made lemon curd but buy it for gingerbread in the fall. I have to say this looks delicious for a breakfast spread, never thought of it for that. I’m off to look at the recipe. I use my MW to heat leftovers and cook bacon, that’s it! See you tomorrow for your product review. Wish I could join you for lemon curd and cookies.......

  3. Olive, you must stop it with the lemon curd. No one here appreciates it but me. However, my sister-in-law, who lives in England, will be here soon for three weeks. She loves lemon curd, loves to cook and loves me. It may be in my future, soon.

    1. I hope she makes lemon curd for you. Surely those kids would eat it with cake and fruit. I can think of many possible combinations. I am evangelical about it.

  4. I love lemon curd - but it is so tempting especially when just made.

  5. Lemon curd looks yummy. Looking forward to your review tomorrow.

  6. this beautiful picture and post just might be enough to make me go into my kitchen and make some myself. I do love, love lemon curd..especially made with meyer lemons....
    nice post!
    Love, Mona

  7. You are talking me into making lemon curd, you know. Never once thought about it before, but now I just may do it. And how do you ever make popcorn if you have no microwave?

  8. I have had lemon curd from Trader Joe's but never tried making it. Looks delish, Olive.

  9. Good Evening Olive, Oh yes please, I adore lemon curd. I'm the same as you, I do not own a microwave, I prefer the old fashioned stirring method....and I absolutely agree, once you make lemon curd, you will make it again and again and again.
    Best Wishes

  10. I"d love a bite of your lemon curd. This post makes me want to jump up and run to the kitchen to make a lemon pie.

  11. Your lemon curd looks beautiful! I really do have to make some:@)

  12. As Bubba says, "I like lemon curd on English muffins, lemon curd on ginger snaps, lemon curd on angel food cake, lemon curd on cream cheese sandwiches, lemon curd on banana bread, lemon curd on apple slices, and . . ."

    Good luck on your first product review - I'll be reading!

  13. I would eat lemon curd at any time. Love it! Will check in tomorrow for your product review! Good for you, Olive. Ann

  14. I have to check out this recipe, it looks delicious, Olive. And Ill be back tomorrow!


  15. Thank you so much, Olive, for posting this! I'm going to save it forever!!!

  16. Mmm, love lemon
    curd! I was introduced
    to it by one of my besties,
    Fiona, who grew up in
    Scotland, and I was
    hooked. Would most
    definitely love to enjoy
    it with you, too!

  18. Olie, this sounds wonderful. I love it and had it over in England with scones, yum.

  19. I agree about stirring things on the stove being soothing, but I think you need a microwave. How do you puff up a Moon Pie?

  20. I wish I could too Olive! It looks so good and I need good right now! I love your beautiful photos of it too. I guess I will just have to imagine myself eating it with you :)
    I hope you had a wonderful Easter!

    Hugs, Shari

  25. Does that ever look like YUM! Just might be very good for me!

  26. Yes that sounds good. Be there in a bit.

  27. Oh goodness this stuff is amazing. I haven't tried it homemade but I did buy some at Trader Joes. It's like eating pie from a jar. YUM!

  28. I have never made lemon curd, but have always wanted to! It looks delicious! I saw your Jan Karon cookbook. . . The Mitford series might be my favorite books on the planet! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle
