  • Lemon Curd

    I have just found a recipe for lemon curd that I am going to try, yummy , but I was wondering if anyone knew how long it can be kept for?
    Any help will be great.
    Thanks
    Emma

    When I've made lemon curd I always keep it in the fridge as it doesn't keep as well as jam would. I think in the fridge it manages to last up to a month, though I usually find it tastes so yummy it might not last that long. Make sure you get unwaxed lemons.

      Yes I'd keep it in the fridge for about a month or two.
      Have some on a slice of toast for me!!!

        Hi
        For your own consumption - kept in the fridge it will keep for a bout four weeks - if you are selling it I would suggest talking to you r local EHO.

            Hi
            Sorry
            EHO-Environmental Health Officer - they will need to check your kitchen etc. before you can sell produce to the public.
            You may need to speak to TS (Trading Standards) re weights and labelling.

              EHO = Environmental Health Office(r) I'm assuming.

                Thanks I have just started a new thread now to find out more about the legalities of it all.
                Thanks for bringing that to my attention.......

                  Mmmm - I never have a jar for long enough to find out how long it will last!

                    Shelf life/Fridge shelf life really depends on your recipe!

                    The "purest" recipes (Lemons, Eggs, Butter, Sugar) have little in them to enhance preservation - and the method of preparation means that your curd is not brought up to a suitable temperature, so I would suggest no more than 2 weeks once opened.. (who on earth keeps proper lemon curd that long!!! yummy!!)..

                    One thing I would say is that unpasteurised egg is considered dangerous.. so I wouldn't give lemon curd as a gift to the vulnerable, pregnant or very young!

                      Ours never lasts long enough either, but the last time I bought some from a market stall, the woman said 2 weeks...
