Lemon Curd and Iris
Have you tried making home made lemon curd? I've heard people rave about how delicious both the store bought and home made taste so I looked up a recipe for easy lemon curd and made it. It has nice texture, a tiny bit 'gritty' and very lemony. Not nearly as sweet as the store bought.
Below is a picture I took off the internet and also the ingredients are below the pic.
INGREDIENTS: Glucose-Fructose Syrup, Sugar, Water, Lemon Juice from Concentrate (8%), Maize Starch, Palm Oil, Dried Egg, Rapeseed Oil, Citric Acid, Gelling Agent (Pectin), Acidity Regulator (Sodium Citrate), Lemon Oil, Colour (Carotenes), Antioxidant (Ascorbic Acid).
Here's what's left of the curd I made. Obviously paler and it doesn't have all the strange ingredients of the above. Just lemons, sugar, eggs, and butter.
Well, I made it and now I know. I doubt I'll make it again. I just wondered if anyone else made it and would they make it again.
I brought a bunch of Iris in and put them on the table. The light blue one has a wonderful scent and fills the room with it. None of my other Iris have much, if any, scent.
Thanks for coming by,
