Meyer Lemon Butter
« on: October 31, 2012, 06:44:45 am »
Meyer Lemons grow in our cool climate,  provided they are in the warmest spot we can provide.  This is next to a large stone wall. We have chooks so it is easy to make Lemon Butter in the TMX.  Meyer lemons are not as strong in lemon flavor as normal lemons so i have adapted Tenina's recipe to give a strong lemon flavor.This makes 2  1/2 large jars.

NEED

200g butter, diced into cubes.
zest of 3 lemons,  removed with vegetable peeler
130g of lemon juice measured into TMX bowl, (I used 5 lemons)
4 eggs and 2 egg yolk
300g sugar

DO
Place sugar and zest into TMX bowl and zap 20 seconds/sp 7.
Add eggs and juice and mix, 20 seconds/ sp7
ADD BUTTERFLY
Add butter
Mix and cook, 5 mins/sp2, 80 o
then 5 mins/ sp 3., 80 o
Pour into sterile jars.
Store in fridge.

K Atie, yes keep in fridge. I have no idea how long it would keep for but would guess a couple of weeks.  It has never lasted more than a couple of days as GD has been seen eating it with a spoon.  Hope you enjoy it.
