Lemon Sauce

I am not certain where Marlys got this recipe; it is simple and easy. Since it is based on cornstarch, it sets up if you refrigerate it, and so you need to beat and heat it after that to get it smooth again. Enjoy.

Lemon Sauce

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon rind
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 3 Tablespoons lemon juice

Combine sugar, cornstarch, salt and lemon rind. Stir in gradually water. Cook about 5 minutes or until clear and thick. Add butter and lemon juice. Makes about 2 cups.

I strongly suspect that my experience making this sauce was somewhat as a good accident. This recipe calls for boiling water and cornstarch. What we amateur cooks don’t know is that you need to dissolve the cornstarch in cold liquid. I learned this the hard way making the Favorite Sauce.
