If the start of this year has taught me anything it’s about keeping life simple in every aspect of life, especially cooking. The last 18 months I’ve been semi-successful in re-evaluating so many aspects of life with the goal of getting rid of what stresses me out and bringing in more of what brings me joy.
I’ve concluded simplifying tasks and being more mindful of my relationships and choices not only increases my joy, it sustains me from constant curve balls life throws at me.
What does any of this have to do with making lemon curd? Well, everything. I decided short-cuts and cooking hacks makes me happy. And if it makes me happy it’s worth sharing with you. Lemon curd is one of those condiments whose sole existence is to add a bit of sweet-citrus pleasure to one’s palate. It can elevate a wonderful scone to an amazing experience with just one bite with zero regrets. The very fact you can achieve this in 7 minutes using the microwave amazes me. And I hope it amazes you too. Enjoy!
