Step 1

Set up a bain marie (a bowl sat on top of a pot of gently simmering water without touching the water onto the bowl)

Step 2

Juice and zest the lemons and add the sugar and butter and gently stir the mixture until all of the butter and sugar has melted

Step 3

Whisk the eggs before stirring into the mixture to cook for 15 minutes

Step 4

Once the mixture is thick and you can run your finger down a spoon and leave a path leave aside to cool before transferring into jars for refridgeration.
