Lemon Honey

Thursday, September 1, 2011
We have been having a lemon honey craze lately. The children are enjoying it on their sandwiches for lunch everyday and sometimes for toast at breakfast.  I have the best recipe in the world, handed down from my grandmother and it never fails.

Nana Spencer's Lemon Honey
1 pound sugar (500gms)
1/2 pound butter (250gms)
4 or 5 eggs
4 or 5 lemons

Sterilize jars in the oven at about 100-120 degC for about 20 minutes. Take out of oven and cool a little before filling.

Grate two of the lemons lightly, just the yellow part. Squeeze juice.

In a bowl beat eggs, add sugar, butter chopped up into small pieces and lemon juice and rind. Put bowl over a pot of boiling water. Stir frequently until mixture thickens - about 20 minutes.

Pour into jars and allow it to cool a little before placing into the fridge. 
Note: the lemon honey continues to set when in the fridge overnight.

Yum! I haven't made lemon honey for a while. Our lemons went into lemon meringue pies and lemon honey drinks when we all had the flu last month.

We call that "lemon butter" and we love it! I haven't made any for a long time!

never heard of lemon honey before!!! Guess it's what we call lemon curd. It definitely is the best!
