never tried in the SC but do it in the MW. It only takes a few minutes so never thought of using SC.

I've found that the microwave version, though just as nice, doesn't keep all that well. I do big quantities so thought I'd ask about crock pot . Thanks for responding:)

It's so easy to make lemon curd in a saucepan that I don't think there's any point in using a slow cooker. There's no need for a double boiler, just stir the mixture constantly over medium heat and it will take about five minutes to thicken. The acid and sugar prevent the mixture from curdling.

I usually freeze mine. Would it keep better if you did it in the SC?

It isn't easy in the quantities I want to make and I've found that longer cooking makes for longer keeping, so am interested in slow cooker way. My double boiler recipe has a 4 month keep time in a jar. Then longer in fridge. The only trouble is I need a larger crock pot to accommodate my bowl!

I see - I did not realise you could keep it so long. Only me here who likes it and I only make a tiny amount and freeze half of that!
