Rated 5 out of 5 by Yanya from Fantastic lemon curd Not a lemon lover, but there is a lemon tree in my backyard, so you know..... just tried it today. It's quick and easy. It tasted great. It literally made me fall in love with lemon. I gave some to my friends and they all loved it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jgonza715 from Best Lemon Curd ever! So easy and the result is an amazing lemon curd that can be used in so many ways. Filling cupcakes, tartlets, or dipping scones, it's tasty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EddC from Figured out the fail So, the first time I made this it wouldn't thicken. Then I realized that after I raised the speed to 10, I never flicked the switch to High. I fixed my first batch, though, by adding the juice of another lemon to anither egg, then I put it all on the stove and kept whisking until it bubbled. Refrigerated it, and it was amazing.

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 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 1 out of 5 by Trillium from Won't set I had the same problem as another reviewer, after 5 min of blending on high it was completely liquid and not thick at all. I added the butter as instructed but it never thickened or set. I don't think it got hot enough in 5 min. Probably should've gone longer but I'll just go back to the traditional method rather than waste the ingredients. I wish i knew how other people got this work.
