Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd

Sam loves lemons. I love them, too, but not as much as she does. Lemonade, lemon chiffon pie, lemon sticks, lemon floor cleaner, and, especially, Lemon Curd are among her favorite things. She even loves the color of lemon yellow. I learned early on in our relationship that lemon flavored foods were the way to my sweetie’s tart heart.

When we started eating keto, many of her favorite things were no longer an option for me to prepare for her. What’s a chef to do? I quickly came up with my own recipe for Lemon Curd. Thanks to allulose, I was able to keep Sam happy with her favorite flavor and scent. She refers to it as "sunshine on a spoon."

Serve Lemon Curd with fresh berries on a bright summer day. Nice and light, the flavor of Lemon Curd will indulge your taste buds without weighing them down.
