Custard Lemon Fridge Tart Recipe

This custard lemon fridge tart recipe has been a sweet-sour favorite for as long as I can remember.  The custard is prepared with just enough sugar not to be too sweet. Add enough lemon juice to the condensed milk so that it is thick enough and you decide just how tangy you want it to be – with even more lemon juice.
