The other day I realized that I have a whole, long list of foods that I’ve never tried but would like to. They’re foods that I’ve heard of or read about and filed away, thinking, “I should try that one day” but never have – my foodie bucket list, so to speak. So, I decided to start working my way down the list. This recipe crosses two foods off that list – Meyer lemons and lemon curd. I’ve never made lemon curd before because it seemed fairly labor intensive. Then, I stumbled on this microwave method for making lemon curd in Southern Living, and Meyer lemons were on sale. So, I took it as a sign and made some lemon curd, and I realized that I have been missing out! It is sweet and tart and bright and citrus-y. And I can’t wait to slather it all over some scones in the morning.
