This recipe was my great-grandmother's, but she never measured anything. Fortunately, Mom watched her over the years and finally came up with the measurements.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
  • Finely grated peel of 4 lemons
  • 4 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 2 minutes. Pour into jars; cool.
  2. Store in refrigerator or freezer. Sauce is good on pound cake, muffins, pancakes and waffles.
