Lemon Butter or Curd whichever takes your fancy – means the same thing but just different ways that people have been raised as to what they call it .. There is some discussion on whether its to do with ingredients but really they are both the same thing… except for Lemon Honey – now that is different because its made with honey instead of sugar !

So I love Lemon butter – its delicious – however lemon butter doesn’t love my hips and thighs so I prefer to have it more as a treat and particularly when lemons are in abundance, as they are at this time of year,  and as always I have reduced the sugar as much as possible ..
