My lemon trees were dripping with lemons. So when life gives you lemons, make lemon curd! No more standing over the double boiler stirring, stirring, stirring. Making this recipe in your Magimix Cook Expert is so simple, you’ll have jars of happy, delicious, lemony goodness in no time. Spread it on bread, drizzle over vanilla ice-cream, layer it with crushed amaretti biscuits and yoghurt for a fast and simple parfait, top your Pavlova, bake it into a lemon tart… so many uses!

  1. Hi Danielle, just wondering if you halved the mixture do you use the same times as the full volume ? Thx Wens

    1. Hi Wens. You might not need to cook it for as long at Step 3. Just keep an eye on it, check after 20 minutes if it is thickened to your liking, if not, cook for longer.

  2. Hi Danielle, once you’ve sealed jars, should you reheat in simmering water bath to make sure they’re properly sealed..I tend to do that with all my preserves but not sure if it would cause the curd to split.

    1. Hi Rose. I’ve never done that before. I just pour the hot curd into sterilized jars and make sure they are tightly sealed. Can I suggest you try your method with 1 jar and see how it works? The curd doesn’t hang around for long in my house – I have been known just to eat it out of the jar!
