Ingredients
  • Finely grated zest of 4 unwaxed lemons
  • 225ml lemon juice
  • 125g unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • 350g caster sugar
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
Method
  • Wash and rinse two jam jars and put in the oven at 140C/120C Fan/Gas 1 for 15 minutes.

  • Put the lemon zest and juice in a bowl with the butter, sugar and eggs. Stand the bowl over a pan of simmering water and stir continuously for about 20 minutes or until the mixture thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.

  • Put in the sterilised jam jars and cover. When cold, store in the fridge.
