Zesty Homemade Lemon Butter
I love it when my neighbours and yoga students give me fresh fruit from their trees and veggies from their gardens. This week, I received the most divine smelling fresh zesty lemons, I love lemons!!
When life gives you lemons, make lemon butter
So I decided to make a zesty lemon butter, its amazing to eat straight out of the jar... or spread on your croissants, this batch tastes just like a lemon tart.
Super easy to make, especially if you have a Thermomix. I like mine to be full of lemon tang!
I just picked up some small glass jars at the discount store, this batch makes around 300g, so that was 3 portions, one for you, one for me and one for my student who provided the lemons.
Juice of 2 large lemons (you could add a lime instead)
110g Caster Sugar
Zest of 1 Lemon
Insert Butterfly into TM bowl and add the ingredients. Cook for 8 minutes at 80C on speed 3
Check to see if mixture coats the back of the spoon, if not cook for a future 2-3 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved.
Place in sterilised jars and chill until thickened.
Use as filling to make tarts or simple serve as accompaniment to other sweets
I've got so many lemons, I might have to also make Lemon Slice during the week - stay tuned.
