Green lemon curd?

My lemon curd turned green. It tasted great and had the perfect consistency but as it was thickening it started to turn slightly green. Has this happened to anyone? Any thoughts on how to correct this?

In what kind of pot did you make it? If not stainless steel, you've experienced a reaction between the metal and the acid in the lemon juice. In addition to producing an off color, the reaction can potentially be toxic. And yes, this happened to me the first time I ever made lemon curd . . . in an aluminum pot.

I agree with boulangere, I have made lemon curd thousands of times and the one instance it turned green was with an aluminum pot. I threw it out, which was depressing considering I had just juiced and zested 24 lemons. :(

And shouldn't she be "a" trusted source rather than "an" trusted source?
