What's the best jarred lemon curd?

12 posts in this topic

Tonight I feel like trying Sherry Yard's lemon curd souffles -- ridiculously easy if you already have curd ready. I've never made it, and don't have time to try in time for school night bedtime. Is is a silly idea to go ready-made? And any preferences?

A friend gave us a jar of Wilkin & Sons LTD---very good if time is short--I don't know where she got it, but I suspect World Market or Sur le Tables

American Spoon out of Michigan is great, but it really is easy to make and that's the best kind of all because you can lick the bowl!

I'd second that...and also try lime curd, or lemon-lime curd... I also made one with grapefruit that was pretty nice.

I've always loved the Tiptree/Wilkin & Sons brand. Unfortunately, in my area of Canada it became increasingly difficult to find (Robertson's seemed to take over the market, but was not as good, I thought). Fortunately, I'm currently living in Japan where it's often the only brand I can find. Now if only I can bring myself to pay $6-8 for it...

Well, I went to the store, found a jar of Wilkins, and then suddenly decided to make it myself. (I think the promise of licking the bowl was what did it...and the vision of making something so yellow and satiny.) I think I'll go buy the Wilkins jar tomorrow, just to compare them. Thanks, all!

Trader Joe's has a very nice private label lemon curd out these days. I generally prefer to make my own, but if I don't have the time, I reach for the TJ's. It is not as sweet as the Robertson's and some of the other brands out there, which I find preferable.
