2 cups sugar
1 cube butter
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup lemon juice
In top of a double boiler add sugar, butter, beaten eggs and lemon juice. Cook on medium high/medium, stirring till smooth then can be stirred occasionally. When it starts to thicken slightly and the thin white foam on top disappears cook just a few more minutes and poor in jars.
I've been told it does not work in a regular pan. If you don't have a double boiler you can use any pan with water in the bottom and a heat proof bowl for the top part.
I don't have a double boiler so I put a metal bowl on top of a pan and went to work. It worked great.
This is what it will look like what it is almost done. Next, pour butter into cute jars and let cool. Refrigerate after cool. Butter can be frozen. Use within a few weeks of making, if it lasts that long! This makes a wonderful gift. People will ask for it again and again.
My Aunt told me that I would be the 5th generation in our family to make this recipe! That made it even more fun. I love having a connection to the past and my family. That is what life is about. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Sharon!
We now have a 6th generation that loves this stuff. He could not get enough of the Lemon Butter! He even liked it on his french toast. Hope you enjoy it too! Let me know how you like it!
