Needed to get rid of some egg yolks, so just finished making this recipe. Made enough to fill one of the Roses Lime Marmalade jars. I put zest in from all three lemons, and if the scraper is anything to go by, it has most certainly passed the lick test!! I can’t wait to try it once cooled. Thanks!

This is the first time I’ve made lemon butter in any way. I really like it! I misread the recipe adding zest of 3 instead of 2 lemons and it was still great – beautiful lemon flavour. My neighbour who makes lemon butter stovetop all the time did a taste test for me and gave it a thumbs up. Will definitely be making again. Thanks for sharing your recipe ?
