The perfect scone accompaniment!
2 large eggs plus 2 large yolks
3/4 c. sugar
1/3 c. freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 c. freshly squeezed orange juice
1 t. grated lemon zest
1 t. grated orange zest
few grains of salt
1/3 c. butter, chilled
In a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan, whisk together the eggs and yolks to combine. Whisk in the sugar, lemon juice, orange juice, lemon peel, orange peel, and salt. Cut the butter into 1/2" cubes and add to the saucepan. Stirring constantly, cook the mixture just until it comes to a boil and thickens. Do not overcook as it will curdle.
Pour the mixture into a heatproof glass container. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Makes approximately 2 cups.
