Lemon Curd is Mellow Yellow
Barbara, over at winosandfoodies asked that we participate in Livestrong Day (New Zealand)
(LIVESTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation's (LAF) grassroots advocacy initiative to unify people affected by cancer and to raise awareness about cancer survivorship issues on a national level and in local communities across the country. LIVESTRONG Day 2007 will occur on Wednesday, May 16.)
Barbara says "I'm asking all bloggers to participate in the blog event A TASTE OF YELLOW by making a dish containing some type of yellow food. This can be anything you like as long it features a yellow food".
As soon as I read this I signed up straight away. I'm normally very reluctant to participate in cooking events as I do not consider myself a particularly good cook and I'm an even worse photographer but cancer is something that touches us all and awareness needs to be publicised. Also I have been planning to make some Lemon Curd and this was just the motivation I needed to stop talking about it and get making it. Yesterday my mother was out with her friend so I knew I'd have the kitchen to myself and I made my first batch. Now you may not think three jars is very much but remember this is for eating not keeping.
I used the BBC recipe by Burrastow House Hotel
Makes 4-6 jars
Preparation time less than 30 mins
Cooking time 10 to 30 mins
4 lemons, rind and juice
1. Grate rind of lemons and squeeze out juice. Put sugar, rind and juice, butter and beaten eggs into a large basin on top of a pan of simmering water. Stir with a wooden spoon until thick and curd coats the back of the spoon. Pour into warm sterile jars, cover, seal and label. Refrigerate.
Anyone thinking of participating will need to email Barbara with details of the post by May 7th.
