Some times I get a craving for Lemon Butter. I don't like the type you buy in the supermarket so it was back to Di's Mum's recipe. Mary O'Neil makes a mean lemon butter and her microwave recipe it just so quick and easy. I didn't have to buy anything, everything was in the pantry.
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons of butter
juice of 2 lemons
1/2 cup of sugar
I put everything into a bowl and gave it a good whizz with the electric hand mixer then put the mixture into a pyrex jug and into the microwave on high for 1 minute. A good beat with a wooden spoon then back into the microwave for 3 more 30 second bursts, beating between each time with the wooden spoon. By this stage the mixture was coating the back of the spoon so I knew that it was ready.
I had sterilized a glass jar and it was still warm, so in went the mixture even though it was still hot. ( I knew that hot mixture wouldn't crack the jar because it had been heated.)
There was just a bit of the mixture what wouldn't fit in the jar so I had to make some toast so that it wasn't wasted.
When the jar cooled down it looked so delicious I dressed in with a lace doily and a piece of ribbon.
A lot cheaper, quicker and more tasty than buying at the supmarket. Thanks Mary.
(P.S. Make sure you store it in the refrigerator, it will last a couple of weeks, mine is always gone long before that.)
