  2. Once combined add in cubed butter on a low-medium heat stirring frequently.
  3. When the butter has completely melted add the zest of 2 lemons, and the juice from 3 lemons (It should be roughly about a cup of lemon juice.)
  4. Let it thicken up for about 15 minutes – stirring occasionally. Once you take it off the job it will thicken up more as it cools down.
