Lemon honey, also known as lemon spread or curd tastes great on toast or scones or can be used as a filling in sweet pies or tarts.
1 cup white sugar
50 g margarine or butter
2 eggs, well beaten
2 lemons, grated rind and juice
- Put all ingredients into a saucepan.
- Simmer over a low heat, stirring often, until honey like.
- Spoon into sterilised jars and cover immediately with lids or cellophane covers.
Sterilise bottles and jars by placing them in an oven heated to 120°C, for about 15 minutes. Lids/seals can be sterilised by placing them in a pan of boiling water. These can be left simmering until required. Pour contents into the bottles/jars while still hot and screw on the lids.
