OMG! Just finished making this in lemon for the lemon merengue cupcake recipe on this site and just now placed it in jars. Licked the spatula and went to heaven!

What a pleasant change from the typical lemon curd...can't wait to try it with different types of citrus (especially blood oranges - the color should be beautiful!)

Would be helpful to have optional canning instructions.
