Lemon curd/Lemon mousse


Recipe Description
Light and lemony​
Preparation Steps:
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
Ingredients:
Lemon curd

Ingredients:
4 Tablespoons
butter (½ stick)
½ cup lemon juice,
preferably fresh
1 cup sugar
equivalent artificial
sweetener,
preferably liquid
(powdered may have
off-flavors)
3 eggs
1 egg yolk
1 small pinch salt

Lemon Mousse

Ingredients:
1 recipe lemon curd,
chilled (see link
above)
2/3 cup heavy
cream (preferably
not ultra-
pasteurized)
1 teaspoon vanilla
extract
sugar substitute
equal to 2-3
tablespoons sugar
(liquid sucralose
works well; see link
below)​
Serves:
Directions:
Lemon Curd

Preparation:
1) Cut butter up into pieces (around 8 to 10 pieces
is good). Put the butter into the freezer.
2) Blend the rest of the ingredients together, with
either a stick blender or standing blender.

3) Heat slowly in small saucepan or double boiler.
Whisk or stir frequently. When curd begins to
thicken to the point where it coats the spoon, or
leaves a trail when the bottom of the pan is scraped
with a spatula, or is 170 F, remove from heat (don't
let it get to boiling).

4) Immediately whisk or stir in butter. Keep stirring
until butter is melted and incorporated.

5) Taste. If you think it's too "sharp," try adding
another Tablespoon or two of butter.

6) Put in airtight container. A piece of plastic wrap
on the surface will keep a "skin" from forming. Cool
completely before using (it will thicken a bit more).

It can keep in refrigerator up to one week.

Lemon Mousse


Preparation:
Whip cream with vanilla and sugar substitute. Mix
with lemon curd. Adjust sweetener if you'd like to
add a little (depends upon how tangy you want your
mousse). Serve in dessert dishes, or to be fancy,
wine or martini glasses. Berries or mint make a nice
garnish.

Makes 6 servings.
