You have to admit, lemons are just lovely. They add pizzazz to any dish, they are beautiful as a centerpiece, they can liven up your water, and they are just plain pretty. One of our favorite things to do with lemons is to make curd.
Lemon curd is creamy & smooth with just the right amount of a lemon bite. It is a perfect addition to your morning scone and it is sure to brighten up any cold January morning.
