Simple Lemon Curd, with a touch of olive oil

  Simple Lemon Curd with olive oil

Every time I return to this recipe my brain screams "Let the Sunshine in, let the Sunshine in..."   This recipe is too easy to be true.  It makes a light and luscious filling for pie, topping for shortbread, dip for crackers, layers for trifle, schmear for bagels....

On a day when winter seems endless, lemon curd should be enjoyed.

Simple Lemon Curd in the microwave

Wash lemons & warm in microwave 1 min, this helps to yield more juice. Mix finely ground lemon rind and juice in a glass bowl with vinegar, Orange Vanilla Sugar, eggs, & oil. Microwave for 8-13 min. Whisk well every 2 minutes to ensure even thickening. Let stand 5 minutes, whisking once or twice. The Lemon Curd thickens as it cools.
