It’s that time of year…

Lemon curd – coming soon!  I think I’ll make hubby harvest while I’m out of town~

Picked my weird ass octolemons today. My tree is reverting back to its genetic origins.

My Lemon Curd Recipe:

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces

3 Tbs. grated lemon peel

2/3 cup lemon juice

3 large eggs

Bring first four ingredients to simmer in a large saucepan.  Stir constantly.  Whisk eggs in separate bowl.  Gradually whisk in several spoons of the hot butter mixture.  Add egg mixture to pan and stir over low heat until thick and mixture leaves a path on the back of a spoon.  Do not boil.  Cover with plastic wrap and chill several hours or overnight.  Or pour into jars and give away to those you love.

    Those are some weird looking lemons. ;)

    Have no idea what lemon curd is. Looking it up.

    Weird ass? That sounds Midwestern, like something my friends and I would say to each other.

    Those are the strangest lemons I’ve ever seen, are you certain they’re not alien eggs? : )

  5. Those look like something they had at Whole Foods last week. But, are most likely delish. Maybe your prehistoric lemon trees are attracting wasps in some primeval way. Or Not.

    I love lemon curd but the stuff in the jars is most likely no match for yours which I imagine to be deliciously perfect.


  6. Hi Steph. Those lemons with fingers are called a Buddha’s Hand. Maybe that’s what my tree has reverted to. A very ancient genotype.

  7. Not alien eggs, Kat. Retro lemons. ;)

  8. Hey Tim, did I post a recipe? I better look! And weird ass – oh, very common. “What a weird ass thing to do.” “That’s a weird ass car, man.” “Weird ass lemons.” The term speaks for itself.

  9. I’ll bring some next time, Tom!
