    1. Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat and set to one side.
    2. Measure out 4 half egg shells of water. Add water, yolks and lemon juice to a double boiler or a metal bowl placed over a saucepan with simmering water. Make sure the bowl does not touch the water or the eggs will get too hot. Whisk till thickened then remove from the hob.
