Rated 5 out of 5 by Feathers from Easiest tastiest lemon curd ever This is my first time venturing outside of making soup and smoothie in my Vitamix. Initially I was hesitant because I have not had any success in making lemon curd on the stove (ever). I gave this recipe a try as my weekend project. I cut the sugar from 1 1/2 cup to 1 cup plus a squirt of honey. It is fabulous! The little bit of honey is luscious. I may cut the sugar a little more next time and add more honey. My hubby and I couldn't wait for it to cool down, and sat the jar in cold water so we could taste it faster. I LOVE THIS LEMON CURD! Now I am plotting which of my friends will get my homemade lemon curd as presents!!! Will definitely make this again and again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skook1 from Fantastico! I’ve made all sorts of lemon curd recipes, but this one was by far the easiest, besides tasting close to divine! Used three (3) Meyer lemons from my own tree, but reduced the sugar content to a scant 1 1/4 cups. An afterthought was about 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla paste, which only added to it’s aura of lusciousness. You bet this will be my preferred way to make lemon curd. Most other recipes were on the small side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Patrick52 from This recipe is Wonderful! This Vitamix recipe is simple and the results are amazing. I use Meyer lemons when in season for an even better result. It makes 4 half pint jars of curd. The Vitamix makes the job so easy and it comes out the same every time. The secret to consistent results is making sure each piece of butter is fully incorporated before adding the next piece. It is already gelled while it's still hot in the pitcher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by michael66 from Excellent curd! I have always avoided making lemon curd on the stovetop because the risk of me wrecking it is high. This recipe is straightforward and really easy. It is runny while hot, but sets right up in the refridgerator. I've made this with both lemons and limes and it turns out equally well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mac 2 from Easy, better taste, cheaper than store bought I make my lemon curd in the VitaMix all of the time. It comes out lighter and fluffier than store bought and boy is it good. You can made 4 batches in the VitaMix in the time that it takes to make 1 batch of lemon curd on the stove. It makes great presents for friends.
