Allow the curd to cool to room temperature. To prevent a ‘surface skin’ from forming while it cools, place a clean piece of plastic food wrap down onto the surface of the curd or cover the bowl. Fill cooled curd into freezer container(s), leaving ½-inch headspace, and freeze immediately.

If your lemon curd hasn’t thickened, it may not have been heated enough. It can take up to 30 minutes of constant stirring to cook lemon curd, especially if it’s a large batch. Remember that curd will thicken more once cooled. If your cooled curd is not thick enough, you can reheat it to thicken.
How do you know when lemon curd is thick enough?
You know your curd is done when you can run a finger across the back of your spoon and it holds a trail in the curd. It’s okay if it’s a little looser than you want it—it will continue to thicken as it cools.
Can I freeze lemon curd in glass jars?
Lemon curd freezes beautifully, here’s how. Allow lemon curd to cool thoroughly before freezing. Divide into useable portion sizes and pour into freezer grade bags, plastic containers or jars. I like using half pint (8 0z, 1 cup, 150ml) glass canning jars.
Can lemon curd tarts be frozen?
I do not recommend freezing your lemon tart. If you really want to freeze the tart: let it cool to room temperature then place it in the freezer for about an hour to firm up. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and freeze for up to one month. Pull the tart out from the freezer about 2 hours prior to a serving.
Can I freeze lemon curd cake?

Is lemon curd safe to eat?

The calorie content in lemon curd is very high, and this should weigh on your mind significantly before you think of consuming significant quantities of it.
Can you eat lemon curd by itself?
You can use lemon curd on its own it as a filling for tarts, or fold it in with various cheeses to create a tangy tart or pie filling!
What can go wrong when making lemon curd?
