  1. Combine all the ingredients in a heatproof bowl.

  2. Whisk constantly over simmering water until the mixture thickens up and coats the back of a spoon. This may take up to 20 minutes, but possibly longer if not thickening.

  3. Remove from the heat and pour into a sterilised jar.

  4. When cool, label the lemon butter and add the date on it. Store in the fridge until required.
