Lemon Curd Slice

Lemon Curd Slice

 

Last month I decided to have a go at some Lemon Curd in order to make this Lemon Curd Slice I had in mind. Well technically I ended up making three batches of Lemon Curd!! I had just bought some Agar Agar

(it should be noted with the intention of making lemon curd) but you see this was my first time using Agar Agar (which I have since discovered is a totally awesome ingredient) so my first attempt was a little more like Lemon Jelly than Lemon Curd!

 

 

 I mean it was tasty, it still got eaten and gave me a great idea for lemon gummy bears, but lemon curd it was not.

 

 

So back to the drawing board and unperturbed I tried again. This time the mix was too soft. It was great as a sauce but the consistency was just too runny for Lemon Curd.

 

 

I refused to be defeated and made a third attempt. I’ll leave you to imagine my excitement when this batch actually worked!!! I just couldn’t wait to share this recipe with you.

So here goes
