  • This is so yummy and so easy to make. I’m very lazy, so I strained the lemon juice in a strainer when first adding it to the pan so I wouldn’t have to put the finished curd through a mesh sieve. It worked! Thank you for the recipe.

  • Another yummy thing to try: I was wanting something chocolatey, so I subbed in 2T cocoa powder for the lemon juice. It hardens up more than the lemon curd, but still pretty tasty.

  • Maybe I’m missing them, but is it possible to get the carb counts for these recipes? I’m only a couple of weeks in and it would be helpful. Thanks!

    BTW…love the podcast! “MAIL!” “RECIPES!”

    I’m tracking my micros and am unable to locate the nutritional information for this recipe. I made it yesterday and ate most of it in one day. It was the first sweet thing i had put in my mouth for 8 days. I blew my carb intake and lost my ketosis for the day. I was able to locate information on the web that indicated if you use swerve there are no carbs from the sugar substitute. But I’d like to confirm this with someone familiar with this recipe. Thank you. Nancy
