This is a recipe from the Spice Cookbook by Avanelle Day and Lillie Stuckey. It's one of the cookbooks I treasure and read


  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 TBS cornstarch
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 3/4 cup boiling water
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 3 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tps grated lemon rind
  • 2 TBS butter or margarine


  • Combine the 1st 3 ingredients in a saucepan. Add the cold water and mix well. Gradually stir in the boiling water. Cook and stir over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until clear and medium thick.
  • Blend the egg yolk with the lemon juice, stir well to incorporate, then gradually stir it into the hot mixture. Cook for 1 minute stirring constantly. Add lemon rind and butter or margarine, stirring to incorporate. Serve warm over pudding, gingerbread, plain cake, strawberries or apple turnovers-sometimes I just put it over a couple of cookies. lucas
