I was very fancy (not like me) and domestic today and made some lemon butter.
I found an easy enough recipe so I thought I would have a go.
It turned out quite well.
Whilst whisking the mixture over a double saucepan for 20 minutes (quite agonizing for me), I remembered Hubby's mother (Kath) gave me a recipe for lemon butter years ago.
I had made it before but decided to tuck it away because I have very little self control when it comes to lemon butter, and 250 grams of butter is a little to much to consume in several days.
The recipe was "Mrs.Stanley's".
Mrs. Stanley was Hubby's Aunty's Mother-in-law (sorry about the brain teaser) and every Xmas she would bring little lemon tarts with homemade tart shells to Xmas dinner.
They were something to look forward to I can assure you!
Here is a photo of Mrs. Stanley's lemon butter recipe hand written by Kath.
The scrawl next to Kath's writing is mine.
It is the conversion for a metric double batch.
It was nice to think about these two lovely ladies today (they have both passed away sadly) and remember those Xmas' when they were both there. (And I was probably in a corner somewhere quietly stuffing lemon butter tarts in my mouth)
Feel free to jot down the recipe.
It is really good!
