Delicious Keto Lemon Curd Recipe. Zesty & Sweet, the perfect low carb ingredient or condiment!

This low carb lemon curd recipe is modified from one that I used in my first year of being a chef. We would make 50+ jars at a time to sell in the restaurant – we would 10 times the recipe below in one very, very large bowl!

Lemon curd will crystallize when exposed to air, so keep your curd covered with cling film at all times. Crystalization can be reversed with a little heat, place your curd over simmering water and stir until the crystals have melted.

You can make or find unsweetened lemon curd but it is quite bland and tart and doesn’t quite taste right.
