5981  COOKING / Dessert / Re: yummy lemon ice cream easiest recipe ever! on: November 21, 2005 02:22:14 PM
For US craftsters, lemon curd can usually be found in the either the jelly/jam aisle or the "imported food" aisle of major grocery stores, or places like world market, etc. Or it's easy to make (and impresses people as gifts because it seems so gourmet and rare here.)

5 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 lemons, zested and juiced
1 stick butter, cut into pats and chilled

Add enough water to a medium saucepan to come about 1-inch up the side. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Meanwhile, combine egg yolks and sugar in a medium size metal bowl and whisk until smooth, about 1 minute. Measure citrus juice and if needed, add enough cold water to reach 1/3 cup. Add juice and zest to egg mixture and whisk smooth. Once water reaches a simmer, reduce heat to low and place bowl on top of saucepan. (Bowl should be large enough to fit on top of saucepan without touching the water.) Whisk until thickened, approximately 8 minutes, or until mixture is light yellow and coats the back of a spoon. Remove promptly from heat and stir in butter a piece at a time, allowing each addition to melt before adding the next. Remove to a clean container and cover by laying a layer of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd. Refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

Damn!  I knew I should have smuggled Absinthe back from Prague...does anybody have substitution ideas for us Yankees?

Pernod, Jagermeister, ouzo, anything anise-y or licorice will taste similar. Or dissolve licorice candies in vodka to get a similar flavor.

The Dyson Animal (purple) and red/purple are available here in the US, and I've noticed there are starting to be purple "imitators" so have hope! I've never seen a grey & aqua one though! Cool! What makes me jealous are those small sized kitchen washing machines. I'd LOVE to be free of my weekly trip to the laundromat!

Hee hee. I think the red & purple one is the coolest of all, but th purple IS pretty exciting, I must admit. Now I am enticed by the new "ball" dyson. My neighbors keep borrowing mine, I hope they treat him with respect. Derek the Dyson, that's fantastic!

A Dyson saved my life. Well, maybe not, but it's the best vacuum I've ever had, with my 3 long haired pets. It's the one with the ad on TV with the guy who says "It NEVER loses suction", which sounds a bit dirty, but is true! Long live my dyson! Best of all, it's purple   Grin

You'd be surprised what a good cobbler can do. If you really love them I'd take them to a shoe repair and see if they can patch them up. My friend's god ate my favorite loafers once and after they were fixed for about $10  you couldn't even tell.
