Lemon Curd and a 3p Fruits Organic Box Giveaway #68

Lemon Curd

Giveaway, Preserves, ThermoCook | 24th December 2015 | By

Lemon curd is one of those products where I’m unable to eat the commercial stuff, but adore a good homemade version. Sharp, tangy and sweet all at the same time, it’s fabulous spread on hot buttered toast, as an alternative to jam on scones and as a cake filling or topping. It even works beautifully baked into cakes.

I’ve made many fruit curds and have thoroughly enjoyed every one, but lemon curd, being the original is the queen of them all. So when I was sent a box of lemons along with a wonderful array of other fruit, nuts and more from 3pFruits, it was lemon curd that first sprang to mind. Christmas was fast approaching and as everyone loves lemon curd (I hope), I planned to make some for gifts.

3p Fruits Box

3p Fruits is a Spanish company I’ve featured in previous posts. They grow wonderful fruit, nuts and vegetables in the fertile province of Lleida in Catalonia. They are not only organic, but biodynamic too and certified by Demeter. This gets the thumbs up from me. Apart from all the environmental benefits of growing biodynamically, the fruit and veg skins can be eaten with complete confidence: no pesticide residues here. In the UK, we can access their produce and much more via their online shop: red garlic, short cucumbers, sweet potatoes – I want them all. Orders can be made anywhere within the EU and received within 3 days of dispatch.

3p Fruits Box

My box was groaning with oranges and lemons, but also apples, kiwi fruit and sweet juicy Marmande tomatoes. I also had a bag of delicious blanched almonds, a jar of aromatic honey and a bottle of olive oil. Woohoo, Christmas is here. The lemons were large, yellow and full of juice, perfect for lemon curd.

I thought I’d try using my new Optimum ThermoCook to make the lemon curd. As it’s Christmas, the Thermocook is currently on offer for £537, that’s a whopping £358 off. It was so easy and so successful, I made a second batch almost immediately afterwards. It sure beats standing around stirring for twenty minutes or more – just bung in all of the ingredients and let the Thermocook work its magic. I based my recipe on the one that comes with the ThermoCook, but adapted it as I like lemon curd to be really zesty and didn’t want a spare egg white hanging around.


I shall be taking a break for a few days. Normal service will resume in the New Year. Meanwhile I wish you all

a very
Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I leave you with a splendid giveaway to amuse you in my absence. It’s open to anyone in the EU. Do scroll down to the bottom of the post to enter.

Ingredients

    What an array of fruits and I love them all. I love lemons in particular and make a (my family think it’s a wonderful) tangy lemon cake. I haven’t tried making lemon curd myself but I agree that homemade is far superior to the bought stuff so I may have to try and make some myself too!

    Oranges, Lemons and blanched almonds…. I would make a citrus meringue pie and use some of the almonds in the pastry base!
    I love curd and love experimenting with different fruits in them….. One of my favourites is rhubarb which I first made a couple of years ago (tastes like rhubarb and custard in a jar)…. and then apple and blackberry curd is pretty good too. I do love a good citrus curd though…. thoroughly recommend adding a couple of oranges and limes to the lemons for a different tang!

    so many choices, the tomatos with puff pastry and feta to make a delicious tart, the apples in to a warming winter crumble, lemons and oranges are screaming pancakes at me 🙂

    I would use the lovely Lemons and attempt to make a Lemon Meringue Pie, I remember my mom making them, but to be honest I don’t think I could ever re-create that memory, so sweet x

    I’d make a lemon drizzle sponge cake filled with lemon curd
