The English Stillroom was the housekeeper's domain, where she distilled essences and extracted oils from herbs and flowers to flavor her recipes and made the natural lotions and potions for the household. Lemon curd is a wonderful example of a stillroom product. They are made in small batches, using dairy butter and fresh eggs from the farmer down the road. This lemon curd is one of the best we have tasted. We love the intensity of its pure lemon flavor, one which is delicately balanced with the sweetness of sugar and butter.
