Robertson's Lemon Curd 320g (11.3oz)
sweet, lemony, and rich
6/19/2008 10:24 AM
I love lemon curd - for as long as I can remember its been a constant in both my mothers food cupboard, and then later in mine. Not only is it lovely on toast, but its great for cooking.
I won't go into overly much detail about the packaging - there's a picture after all, but lets just say it comes in a screw top jar, with the Robertson's name, Lemon Curd written on it, a picture of some lemons, and all the usual nutritional and ingredient information. Nothing fancy, nothing unique, just a plainly labeled jar.
Appearance wise, it's not quite as garishly yellow as some other brands, but it's still a creamy thick yellow opaque jellyish substance. Immediately upon opening the jar you get a lemony waft up your nostrils - minus the citric bitterness you get from fresh lemons. The smell is quite strong, and a very sweet, but it's a lovely smell.
The lemon curd spreads easily on hot toast and melts a little into the toast, becoming slightly thinner in texture. Added to anything hot, the scent becomes even more wonderful, as if heat somehow activates it. The taste is sweet, lemony, and rich. It's also quite a strong taste, and the texture is silky and a little clingy - it does cling to your teeth a little.
Its also lovely spread onto hot pancakes, used to sandwich ready made meringue shells together, and to fill jam tarts.
