 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5                    Whole eggs
    5                    Egg yolks
    2       c            Sugar
    1       c            Fresh lemon juice
    2                    Lemons, grated zest only
    8       tb           Sweet butter
 
   COMBINE THE EGGS, EGG YOLKS and sugar in a mixing bowl
   and beat until smooth. Add the lemon juice and lemon
   zest and mix. Place the bowl over a pot of boiling
   water or in the top of a double boiler and stir
   vigorously with a wooden spoon until the mixture
   thickens. This mixture will not curdle, so don't worry
   about overcooking it a little. Remove the bowl from
   the boiling water and stir in the butter until melted.
   Refrigerated, this will keep for up to 3 months.
