a dificult problem to have

September 6, 2010

Have you ever stopped, looked around the kitchen, and realized that you have way too much lemon curd?  No?  Just me?  Sigh.

I recently realized that I would need lemon curd for a recipe that I wanted to try.  Several years ago I took a hobby class at the local culinary school, and I remembered how easy it was to make curd.  I also knew how much tastier homemade is over store-bought.  Add these two pieces of info to how easily distracted I am, and it’s obvious that I was going to be making a big honking batch of lemon curd.  And then I’d have it!  To use in lots of things!  So I made my curd and let it cool.  While it was setting up, I re-read the original recipe that I had set out to make, and realized that it only required 1/4 cup.  I had just made over 4 cups.  If I had noticed this initially, I would have just sucked it up and used a jarred curd, you know?  So now I’m sitting there, wondering what to do with well over 3 cups of lemon curd.  Also, being amused by how ‘curd’ sounds when you’re using it over and over again.  Curd, curd, curd, curd.  Curd.  Sounds funny, and a little gross.  Curd.
