In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the caster sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.
Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterilised jam jars. Store for up to three weeks in the fridge.
wonderfully quick and easy recipe. Will use again and again..thank you.
The 3 lemons I zested did not produce enough juice - ended up using an extra lemon and a lime (ran out of lemons!) I also warmed the fruits very slightly in the microwave before juicing..nifty way to get more juice out of them. - 02 Jun 2012
