This tart Lemon Sauce is the perfect complement to our Ginger Pancakes.
½ cup butter
3 egg yolks
½ cup sugar
¼ cup water
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
• In a small saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly, approximately 5 minutes.
• Add egg yolks, sugar, water, and lemon juice. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly until mixture thickens, 2 to 3 minutes.
• Remove from heat, and strain through a wire-mesh strainer. (Can be made a day ahead. Rewarm by heating on Low in a microwave, stirring frequently.)
