lemon butter help!
« on: July 11, 2012, 05:45:44 am »
Well I had my first unsuccessful TM creation. I made lemon butter from EDC and it came out way too runny. I put in the jars and left in the fridge hoping it would set firmer and still hasnt it is like pouring consistency I got some pretty jars, lids and made labels as I want to give them to the ladies
who came to my TM demo as a thankyou.

does anyone know how I may salvage?  BTW it still tastes good

Tip back into TMX add a little cornflour mixed in a little lemon juice,  bring to the boil, cook for 2 mins. Bottle.  Not sure of the volume.  I would probably allow 1 teaspoon to one cup.   Hope this helps.
