OK so I've made my lemon honey

cwnda, Jul 30, 9:48am
but it still seems to be too runny. Is it just more cooking needed (therefore it will thicken more?) or is there something else? Surplus of lemons this year so I thought I'd try something I've not done before.

My auntie made it today too she says it will thicken as it cools.

Hi cwnda
Any chance you could share the recipe?

cwnda, Jul 30, 10:22am
It does appear to be solidifying. Looking forward to tomorrow to try it.
Skye7 - Edmonds Cookery Book - look up 'Lemon Honey'

If you have a supply,try grapefruit,with a little lemon added-fantastic!

Daughter has left & gone home *sigh* & taken her son with her *sigh*.
AND she can wait until she comes back to see me again before she gets to taste it ....

cwnda, Jul 30, 1:04pm
Nah - not allowed grapefruit 'coz of meds ....

cwnda, Jul 30, 11:58pm
AND it tasted bloody good too .... your Mum would be proud of me

Yeah it does thicken as it cools.I've made lots lately and by the time I've got it in my jars what's left in the bottom of the double boiler is cold and set.

I had one of their recipes & it had way too much lemon juice in it, failed!

Add an extra egg Suie and keep cooking till it thickens.

Try stirring in a tablespoon of passionfruit syrup, for a lovely Lemon and Passionfruit curd.I've been making this lately, and it is a hit.

Lemon Curd ( Microwave)

1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
1 cup fresh lemon juice
Zest from 3 lemons
1/2cup melted butter

In a microwave safe bowl (2 litre pyrex) whisk together the sugar & eggs until smooth.
Whisk in the juice, zest & melted butter.
Cook in the microwave on High for 1 minute intervals. Whisk well each time.
Keep doing this until it thickens & coats the back of a metal spoon.
Store in sterilized jars for 1 month in the fridge.
