of lemons, curded and cheesed
As I am sure thousands of readers have been sitting on the edge of their chairs, waiting, hoping with bated breath for an update on the topic of Lemon Curd vs Lemon Cheese. I now bring good news of an answer.
We remember that there is commercially available both Lemon Curd and Lemon Cheese, even though they are, technically according to food authorities, the same thing. When going to buy some more Lemon Cheese, I asked the retail clerk what the difference was between their Lemon Cheese and Lemon Curd. She did not know, but a more veteran clerk offered the explanation that their Lemon Cheese was made with butter, while their Lemon Curd was made with margarine.
So there you go, folks, a taxonomical differentiation between Lemons Curd and Cheese. The first is made from margarine, the second from butter.
No wonder Lemon Cheese is better.
