to answer about the tartness, ive used different brands of yogurt and it has always turned out fine, my guess is that the lemon curd is so sweet it kind of cancels out the sourness of the yogurt.

as for stirring it, once ive put it in the freezer i just leave it alone, it stays creamy enough to scoop out ok.  make sure to use wholemilk yogurt though, i havent tried it with low fat but i think that would probably freeze solid!

sammyb - Try making homemade yogurt sometime. I did and it wasn't tart at all. I find that some brands are not so tart and others are just sour. It depends on the fat content (I think) and probably the amount of time it was left to ferment, if that's the right word.

ok I am officially a noodle. I looked in the fridge this morning searching out some breakfastables, and what it sitting half used in the fridge? a jar of product of scotland lemon curd! anyway so I decided to try out this lovely sounding recipe for myself. I get on craftster to check the details just to be sure. lo and behold it's down for maintainance . me being impatient cannot wait a few minutes, I remembered the ingredients  but the steps were a little foggy and out of some bizarre corner of my brain appeared "you must melt the ingredients together" step. of course no such step exists. we shall have to wait and see how this turns out Smiley

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.

It was delicious! I tried this last week. I blended the yogurt and the lemon curd in the blender first and froze it in a bowl. Yum. I might try adding a little cream next time. It had a sorbet-ish texture, which was good, but I want to see if I can make it creamier.
