There is a lot that you can do with Sugar Free Lemon Curd.
Not only can curd be used with your baked goods, eat can be enjoyed like a jam or jelly.
Sugar Free Lemon Curd
It took me until an established adult age to actually appreciate lemon curd. When I say "established adult age" I mean an age that I could actually see that lemon curd was something to enjoy eating and not something relegated to bridge parties and ladies luncheons.
The fact is that I actually like lemons a lot.
However, I also like adding lemons to my recipes. Thus, lemon curd is something that I now embrace.
Lemon curd really is not that hard to make.
You will need grated lemon zest and lemon juice to make it. Using a fresh lemon is preferred. However, you can find lemon zest and lemon juice online. Just be sure to opt for products that do not have sugar added to them.
Here are some recipes that you may enjoy your curd with.

The recipe for Sugar Free Lemon Curd
What you will need to make this Sugar Free Lemon Curd
- Lemon Juice- ½ cup. Fresh is preferred. Also, no sugar added as well.
- Lemon Zest- 2 ½ teaspoons grated.
- Sugar Alternative- Equivalent to ½ cup of sugar. I use granular. However, a liquid form may work in this recipe as volume is not as big as a factor.
- Eggs- 3/
- Butter- 6 tablespoons cut into cubes. Butter should be at room temperature.
How to make Sugar Free Lemon Curd
- Use a small sauce pan on low heat.
- Add the first four ingredients to the saucepan and stir together.
- When blended, switch to a whisk and whisk in the butter. Whisk the ingredients often to prevent burning.
- When the curd seems to thicken enough to stick to a spoon, remove the pan from the stove. The curd should be creamy at this point.This will be about 5-6 minutes after adding the butter.
- Transfer the curd to a glass bowl or similar container (non metal) and allow to chill for at least an hour. Use this curd within a week after making it.
