Lemon Cheese | Lemon Curd

I adore lemon cheese (or lemon curd…it goes by both names)!

I also cherish lime cheese and, recently, tried someone’s Baileys Cheese and it was heavenly.

How to make these heavenly delights is something that’s always intrigued me, so I looked up the recipe and was stunned to find out how quick and easy it is to make.  I’ve not created my own recipe because, frankly, why mess with perfection?

So I followed Delia’s recipe last night and it took about 10 mins to cook with just a few mins beforehand to grate the lemon zest, squeeze the lemons for juice and get my other ingredients ready!

Here’s the end result of my endeavours:

Lemon Cheese | Lemon Curd

A couple of points to bear in mind:

It ends up looking lighter once it’s cold

It goes a lot thicker as it cools down, so make sure you don’t thicken it to your final desired consistency in the cooking process – leave it a bit runnier

Now…for my next ones, I have a few ideas…

Marsala Cheese (Edit 5th May 2013: I’ve now made Tiramisù Cheese: A spread made with espresso, Marsala all’Uovo and cocoa!)

Strawberry & Champagne Cheese

and I’ll have to make some Lime Cheese, too, as I love it so much 🙂
