An unexpected guests turns up to stay and there’s no jam or honey for toast in the morning – agh! However, there is an easy solution as long as you have 3 eggs and 3 lemons. This is exactly what I was faced with yesterday.
200g caster sugar
100g melted butter
3 lemons juice and rind
- Melt the butter
- Add the sugar
- Grate the lemon rind and squeeze out all the juice
- Break 3 eggs on top of all the other ingredients
Mix all the ingredients together making sure that all the eggs are broken up. Simply put into the microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stop and slowly stir the mixture each minute. It should now be fairly thick and coat the back of a spoon.
If over cooked it’ll revert to being a thin liquid.
Then simply pour into two small jam jars…
I’ve used this recipe time and time again and occasionally I’ve had a few disasters but (in my opinion) it’s a far better zesty taste than a shop bought jar.
