      I love lemon curd! I wonder if there is any way to make this in another flavor, such as orange or raspberry?

      Does this need to be stored in the refrigerator? Or can it be stored in your pantry?

      Fridge. Good rule of thumb to follow, Anything with eggs that has not been Canned in a Hot water bath or Pressure canner should NEVER be stored in a pantry.
