I walked into Walmart Supercenter with my family, curiosity on my mind. Dickinson's Lemon Curd curiosity.
I had seen the jar the last time we were there, read the ingredients (Sugar, eggs, butter, lemon juice concentrate, pectin, citric acid...), and thought it to be interesting, especially since it's an English creation, and I'm American, and therefore have had nothing like it. But today, I wanted it. I wanted to try it, and though it was $2.78 for 10 ounces, well, why not?
Dinner was heavy, with spaghetti bake (mozzarella cheese, an Italian blend of shredded cheese, ground beef, beef sausage), cheesy Ciabatta bread, and chocolate-strawberry-banana smoothies Meridith made. But a little after 11, I determined that since I'm not going to bed until around 2, now would be the time to dull my curiosity.
I dipped a plastic spoon in the jar (clean spoon, and I used it only once), scooped out a tiny bit, and tried it.
It tastes like lemon meringue pie in a jar!
I love the English for many things, and this is just another thing to add to the list!
So that's BBC dramas, comedies, Monty Python, Charles Dickens, politics (I sometimes get tired of ours and need a break, so C-SPAN 2 has Prime Minister's Questions every early Wednesday morning), Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, John Gielgud, Rowan Atkinson, Phil Collins, Sting, and now lemon curd.
