While it's an obvious choice to make lemon curd, a perfectly balanced spread of sunshine, it's a standby for a reason. We also made a lime curd and then took it a few steps further with a blood orange curd. The technique of making a citrus curd is standard and very similar to making pastry cream. Plus, it's infinitely adaptable.

Lemon curd was originally milk was acidulated with lemon juice, then separated from the whey with cheesecloth, resulting in something similar to ricotta. We're glad that the recipe has evolved into the creamy custard we love.
