Lemon Curd Cranberry Sauce

CRAAAANBERRY SAUCE! Such a Thanksgiving staple! Every year I get requests for a recipe so I love shaking it up a bit. This year I decided to use lemon curd to spice it up. Try this one out and let me know what you think! Goes great with cornbread stuffing, the centerpiece turkey and more.
