    2 hrs 10 mins

  • Yields: Double Recipe Serves: 4-5 Small Jars or 3 Big Jars

Ingredients

~ This ingredients List is Doubled ~ :

8 Eggs (whisked)

1 1/2 Cups of White Sugar

3-4 Teaspoons Finely grated Lemon Rind

1 Cup of Lemon Juice ( = about 7-8 lemons)

250g Butter

Directions

1Grate the lemon Rind first then cut and juice the lemons ( make sure there are no pips! ).

2Crack 8 eggs into a bowl and whisk them.

3Pour ALL ingredients into the slow cooker

4Turn on High and constantly keep stirring until the Butter has completely melted.

5Once melted, turn slow cooker onto Low with a Tea Towel under the lid and leave for 1 1/2 - 2 hours or until fairly thick.

6Stir every 20 minutes or so

7Once Lemon Butter is done, take the jars out of the oven and pour it in and put on the lid.

Let the jars COOL on the bench first - DO NOT put straight into the fridge or they will crack/explode.

1Once completely cool, put into fridge and you're all done!!

Sterilising Jars:

1Get some jars (about 3-4 for this recipe) wash them in boiling water, dry them, and put them in the oven at 100C for 10 minutes.

2The lids of the jars you put in a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes not in the oven

3Make sure this is the 10 minutes before serving so that the jars are still very hot when your pour in the Lemon Butter.

4You can put Lemon Butter on anything like Toast, cakes, muffins, bread or just eat it out of the jar!

5Good Luck everyone! Hope you enjoy giving it a go!!

(Remember this recipe is doubled, so just half all ingredients if you're wanting to do the single recipe)

Hi everyone l always used to make my lemon butter on the stovetop but after trying this recipe l will never do stovetop again. It’s so easy. I also doubled the recipe 16 eggs, 3 cups sugar etc so yes a little extra time l just kept stirring every 20 mins till it was thick enough. Great for home or gifts, who doesn’t like homemade.

Made this yesterday. Followed the recipe exactly. The Prep time was a lot longer than 10 minutes but grating and juicing the lemons is difficult for me with arthritis and I was being really careful that I had not misread the recipe. It all looked too simple. Anyway I stirred the mixture every twenty minutes – it came out perfectly! Thanks for this great recipe! Yummy!

Hi All
It separates when you make it on the stove top as well, you just mix it in well! I altered the recipe – 200g butter, 2 cups of lemon juice (as we like it tart!) and it worked well. I also alternated five mins on high, 20 mins on low and it was cooked within an hour. It sure beats standing over the stove top stirring until it thickens!!! only difficulty is getting the last bits out of the heavy crock pot – turning it upside down is easier with a pot (small price to pay!!) And I sterilise all my preserving jars/bottles with boiling water, not the stove method – they sit in the sink, boiling water goes in 2 minutes before I need them, empty, quick dry (if necessary , and it is with lemon curd) and bingo!

Love that you got prompt help when you needed it from our lovely group 🙂

Kaye, I made it for the first time the other day… Cooked mine for too long and the oil separated as well. I called for help on this site and a lovely member advised me to use a stick mixer before it was totally cooled down which worked a treat. Best Lemon Butter I have ever tasted and my daughter is raving about it. Yummy and simple.

Just made this for the first time and it is amazingly simple and delicious.
I am fairly new to slow cooking but am quickly becoming addicted 😁

Is this recipe meant to be smooth or thick at the end?

I have just made this and although it has thickened and tastes sensational, I have found that the butter has sat on the top like an oil. Has anyone else had this happen??

Damn i didnt read that you have to stir every 20 mins, now it’s burnt around the edges

It will yes as excess fluid will get into it from condensation
We use it in electrical slow cookers still?
Do you mean it’s a multi cooker rather than a slow cooker?
An alternative could be to fashion a foil type layer on top of the recipe to try to catch the liquid maybe?

My slow cooker is electronic, so can’t put a tea towel under the lid. Will this make any difference to the end result?
