About curd Edit

When it coagulates, milk separates into a semisolid portion (curd) and a watery liquid (whey). Curd can also refer to:

  1. Cheese is made from the curd.
  2. A creamy mixture made from juice (usually lemon, lime or orange), sugar, butter and egg yolks. The ingredients are cooked together until the mixture becomes quite thick. When cool, the lemon (or lime or orange) curd becomes thick enough to spread and is used as a topping for breads and other baked goods.
