Straight and Narrow

Last week I found Meyer lemons in the store again.  It's that time of year!  I was down to one last jar of lemon curd so bought 8 lemons and planned to make a new batch.  Unfortunately, between work and getting sick, I'm only getting to this today.

In the past I have experimented with other flavors:  key lime, regular lime, grapefruit.  None of them were ever as good as the lemon.  In fact, I just tossed 2 jars of grapefruit curd because I came to the realization that no one was ever going to eat them and they were just getting older in the back of the fridge.  I guess grapefruit doesn't cook as well as lemon does.  So.  No more experimenting!  (At least, not with curd.)

This was also an opportunity to try out my new juicer attachment for the KitchenAid mixer, which was a Christmas present.  What an improvement!  It is so easy to use and to clean.  Thanks, Stephanie!

Here's the link back to the recipe.  A double batch makes just over 4 cups, I got 3 half-pint jars and 3 half-cup jars.  We should be set for a while.
