We’ll post from Baking with Dorie on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month (5/9 and 5/23). We’ll have a Rewind opportunity on 5/30. If you are a blogger, there will be a post here to leave your links on those days. If you are an IGer, please tag #tuesdayswithdorie, #bakingwithdorie and @doriegreenspan. You decide the order in which you bake the recipes. This post will also double as our P&Q (Problems & Questions), so if you have any questions or advice, leave it all right here!
is store-bought jarred lemon curd any good, or is it yucky?
I have used Trader Joe’s lemon curd and thought it was good.
I think it depends on the brand. Store bought doesn’t tend to be as creamy as homemade.
thanks to both you! i’ll probably make half a recipe of the cake and then will only need 2T of curd…can’t decide if i feel like making it, buying it or just replacing it with a berry jam i already have…
after much internal debate, i decided to make a small (one egg) batch of this lemon curd that uses the whole egg. i did push it through a sieve before cooling to make sure it was totally smooth
