    1. Hi Coeliac Girl, thanks for drawing our attention to the microwave issue. This is a real issue and the more people are aware of the issues the better. However once aware, people do need to then make those decisions themselves within the broader spectrum of their life. We have customers who for physical reasons are not able to use conventional cookers, and would certainly never be able to make jam or lemon curd, but are able to microwave their food and some have found this recipe favourable and fun. It was for their benefit I posted it on here. I really see the place of GoodnessDirect as one of giving people wider and alternative choices rather than further limiting them. So many people I talk to have dietary restrictions or physical restrictions and have to overcome an amazing variety of obsticles. I want to enlarge their world and not limit it further. But having said that, if they know about these dangers, they can make more educated decisions. Thanks again.

  1. I agree, Microwaves are also good at reducing your carbon-footprint, as they are more efficient transferrers of energy into the item to be cooked. Everything in life is a trade of.. People who post recipes that state ‘steam for 1/2 hour’ make my blood simmer – Have they never heard of a pressure cooker ?!!!
    Just my $0.02 worth. I look forward to trying out the lemon-curd 🙂

  2. I love to explore I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
