Dating back to the early 1800s, lemon curd was first invented by Protestant Quakers in England before traveling across Europe and North America with the Quakers.

It’s smooth and silky and features a tangy and tart flavor that will immediately capture your children’s senses. It’s the perfect topping for cookies, ice cream, yogurt, scones, cheesecake, cupcakes, and so many more treats!!

If you ever go to England, you’ll notice the importance of Sunday roasts for English people!
But although this filling meal is typically enjoyed on a Sunday night as a warm comfort dish, roast beef can also be enjoyed cold for lunch in summer.
What we really love about this authentic British meal is how easy it is to make.
All you need to do is sear the meat in a frying pan on all sides before placing it in the oven and seasoning it with aromatic herbs and mustard. The traditional recipe requires you to serve it in thin slices.
