A Yummy Summer Spread

Lemon butter is a favourite around here.

Here is the recipe I followed, originally from here :

4 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
125g chopped butter

* Place eggs and sugar into a heatproof bowl
* Place bowl over a pan of barely simmering water and whisk constantly until sugar has dissolved.
* Add lemon juice, lemon rind and butter.
* Whisk mixture for 20 minutes until smooth and the butter has melted and thickened enough to coat the spoon. Do not allow the mixture to boil as it will curdle.
* Pour warm mixture into sterilised jars and seal.

Makes approx 2 cups.


  1. so you just use it as a spread on bread? sounds interesting since i like lemony things. your "packaging" is super cute!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments - they really warm my heart. So thank you!
