Refreshing Dessert Recipes: Lemon Curd

There is certainly something about lemon curd. It is sweet but also tangy as well as refreshing. Originally used in British cooking, it is more widely known as a scone spread in afternoon tea. If you would like to read about the history and try a lime curd recipe, check out this post from a fellow blogger:

We chose to use Stonewall Kitchen’s Lemon Curd. In our opinion, it is as close to perfect as lemon curd comes. You can find it here at Valley Forge Flowers.

Ice Cream Sunday- Kids love it!

French Vanilla Ice Cream, Lemon Curd, Fresh Blue Berries, Blueberry Syrup

We chose vanilla ice cream since it is a neutral flavor. If you want bolder, try strawberry for an extra fruity blast. We scooped the lemon curd over the ice cream. Lemon curd has a tendency to be slick, so we used the back of a spoon to indent the top of the ice cream so the curd could sit.

We added fresh blueberries and blueberry syrup.

Garnish with a mint leaf or just dig in!
