Servings: 1 pint
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon lemon zest
- 9 egg yolks
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter
Combine sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture is hot, but not yet simmering.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth.
Slowly pour some (about 1/3) of the hot sugar mixture into the bowl, whisking constantly.
Transfer all of the egg mixture into the saucepan, whisking to combine, over medium heat.
Slice the butter into tablespoon-size slices and add into the hot mixture. Stir until butter is melted and mixture thickens.
Pour through a mesh sieve into canning jars or a large bowl. Mixture will fill 2 half-pint jars (1 pint total).
