A lemon curd craft evening

Once a week I go to a small church discussion group, and recently I've been hosting a craft evening once a term. Last night we made Delia's lemon curd, and it was so much fun - everyone (including one male) was really into decorating their jam jars! It's a really easy thing for a craft evening as the lemon curd only takes about 15 minutes to make. Ideas I loved include the cork tags, wire, vintage seed labels and the obligatory date stamp. Mine is hidden at the back of the group photo as I was just lacking vision last night - it's my editor's prerogative to leave it out!

I think the results are brilliant for a group of people who don't usually sit down to do anything arty, and my friends were so fussy about getting theirs right (lots of discarded first attempts). Next time (although I haven't told them yet) we're going to make pickles.

My parents love Lemon curd, I must admit I don't really like it...it's like "Marmite" : typically british!

But you know, we don't eat froggs here in France, I never ate frogg ;)

What a fun thing to do together, and the jars look adorable! I've been wanting to try making lemon curd for a while--may just have to do it now!
