Preparation

Step 1

In a small sauce pan with a double boiler, heat one inch of water to boiling. In double boiler (or a metal bowl to go over the saucepan of water) whisk together the egg yolks and sugar.
Measure out 1/3 cup lemon juice (discard any remaining juice or save for another use) and add juice and zest of 4 lemons to sugar mixture. Continue whisking over heat for about 8-9 minutes. It will begin to thicken slightly.
Remove from heat. Add butter, one tablespoon at a time, whisking until melted and smooth. Once all butter has been added pour into a bowl, covered, and refrigerated until thickened and cooled. Mine took about 2 hours to chill. Store for up to two weeks in refrigerator. ENJOY.
