Kids Cooking Thursday: Lemon Butter

This was a good recipe to use up some of the glut of home grown lemons that came from my mother. I was a little worried how Miss Four would behave around really hot microwaved stuff, but she whisked/stirred very carefully, and didn't splash at all. All up this took around 20 minutes with Miss Four doing almost everything, and made two jam jars, and a plastic container full.

Easy microwave lemon butter
4 Eggs
3/4 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Lemon Juice
125g Butter, cubed

Fill 2 glass jars with boiling water to sterilise.

Crack the eggs into a microwave safe bowl,

add the sugar and whisk.

Squeeze the lemons, and add the juice

Whisk all together and add the cubed butter

Place in the microwave on HIGH for two minutes - watch impatiently.

Whisk until smooth, and the microwave for a further two minutes.
Repeat, for a total of 6 minutes cooking time.

Empty the water out of the jars, then ladle in the butter.
Seal while hot to get a vaccum, then store in the fridge.
