For quite a while now I've been conducting an experiment whereby I buy a product in the Sainsburys Basics range and if I like it, I stick with it and if I don't like it, I try the next one up in the range until I find one I do like. This has resulted in my buying and using quite a few products from the Basics range which have proved to be every bit as good as the supposedly top quality products. I bought the Sainsburys Basics Lemon Curd hoping for another money saving success but I was sadly disappointed. Price: I can't quibble about the price because as 22p for a jar, this compares very favourably with the top priced product, ... Read the complete review

Sainsbury's Basics lemon curd - we see such a lot written about the supermarkets own value and basic ranges just lately. I can only suppose that those of us who live on the equivalent of a basic wage have to cut our cloth according to our means and make good use of those basic goods and that well and truly includes me. But a Sainsbury's basics product is only a bargain if you as the consumer actually can enjoy eating it, if you buy basic and find it inedible then it ceases to become a bargain. Sainsbury's do one of their own label lemon curds which if my memory serves me correctly costs about 70p and then there is the Sainsbury's Basics lemon curd which ... Read the complete review

===Background:=== I haven't enjoyed Lemon Curd since being a small boy. IT was something we had with our Tea on Sunday evenings. I've no idea why I haven't had it since then, it just seems certainly for me to have gone out of fashion. But the other week I read a review on here and I really fancied trying it again. So here is my review on it. ===About the Product:=== There are several Lemon Curd products on the market, from the Branded ones to the stores own. The price varies and you can pay up to £1.13 for a tin, The Sainsbury's basic Lemon Curd is significantly cheaper however at just 31p for a tin that weighs 411 g. I notice that Tesco ...

When I was a child I used to love lemon curd although I have to say it is not something I think to buy these days.However the other day my two daughters wanted to make some cakes and the recipe required a lemon curd filling. My husband was doing our Sainsbury's shop so I added the lemon curd to the list and he came back with the Basics version. As we were going to be using this in baking I thought that was fine but I'm not sure that I would have chosen it for a spread to put on bread. However, having made our cakes we had most of the jar left soI thought I would just try some on a slice of bread and I was so amazed because it was completely ... Read the complete review
