When life gives you lemons, make lemon curd

This really has nothing to do with children, or craft, but since this is honestly and truly handmade, it counts. I made lemon curd last night… on a whim. Well actually, it’s because a colleague/friend is going to make big fat pancakes today to raise funds for pick-a-pocket’s cafe in town, I thought I’d do my part. I was going to buy a jar of lemon curd to contribute as pancake enhancers, but then pinterest happened, followed closely by an epiphany…

1. I am a university graduate
2. I already have some ingredients which I want to use up before I move this Sunday
3. With the amount of money I would spend on buying a jar of lemon curd that’s actually made in the UK, I can make heaps more lemon curd. fresh stuff
4. If successful, I could potentially be in the running for Martha Stewart of Herrnhut

So at 7.30 in the evening, I ran to the grocery store, grabbed my supplies, and made my first batch of handmade lemon curd. And I found the perfect jar for it too. I put some in my cereal this morning and it was grrrreat.
