  1. Great recipe, however I put everything in together at the start and stirred it a few times during cooking. Turned out perfectly tastes just like lemon butter without the butter !! Same consistency as well – thanks for sharing

    I grew up LOVING lemon sago! If I have down days at work, my mum drops me some in, to make my day.

  3. This is the easiest lemon sago recipe that I have come across and is really yum ?. Like previous review, I added all the ingredients together, except the lemon juice. I added the juice last after I have turned off the slow cooker so to reduce the loss of vitamin C through the cooking process ??. I made 4 batches because I have a family size slow cooker. This will be great for parties, as you can make lots in advance and add finishing touches later ?.

  4. For years, I always made Lemon Sago in a pot, and it stuck to the bottom every time! Now I have found the SC is the perfect way to cook it! I also add a tin of crushed pineapple, using the juice as part of the water added.
