How do I make lemon curd at home?
Could you tell me the measurement in millilitres (mls) for juice for the Passion Fruit Curd recipe in Domestic Goddess (p344). You say 11 passion fruit, but I use passionfruit nectar, so need to measure it. Thanks, Sangoy.

I love the section in Nigella Kitchen where she goes through her must-haves, with regards to helpful kitchen tools. I'm intrigued by the round 11 inch roasting pan that she mentions, but have no idea what sort would be the most beneficial - enameled cast iron, stainless steel? If she's got a good one, I'd love to buy it. Cheers, Erin

Further to the query you already have about damson jam, I made a big batch of it last night and it has not set. Could it be that I spent too long sifting out the stones while it was bubbling away and it has gone past the setting point? Is there anything I can do now please??
