A lazy Sunday indeed, I didn't even leave the house and I wore my uggies all day. Those kind of Sunday's are my fav. We had another freezer crisis this weekend - I stock food like there's a pending second round of the Great Depression - so it's back to that food blog thing again. But I won't bore you with the many dishes I prepared using the mismatch of meat that semi defrosted when the freezer door was accidently left open on Thursday...instead (my role model for food hoarding - has this lady got a pantry!) the Real Sadie's Lemon Butter. It's a cinch - I even sterilised the jars beforehand, something that always pretrified me silly for some strange reason.
The Real Sadie's Lemon Butter
125g butter chopped
450g white sugar
3/4 cup of fresh squeezed lemon juice
Grated rind of one lemon
Whisk the eggs lightly in a saucepan.
Add all the other ingredients to the eggs.
Cook it on the stove top over heat.
STIR IT ALL THE TIME, not one single second of resting or you get stringy egg bits.
Once it's all dissolved it will start to come to the boil. As it does that turn it off cause it's done.
Pour it into the sterilised jars. It keeps for a few weeks in the fridge.
Easy, told ya so. The key is your committment to the stirring.
