There are a few variations of this recipe in the book,  all of them intrigue me especially the terminology.


Lemon Cheese
1 large lemon
1egg, well beaten,
1 tea cup of sugar,
1 piece of butter, size of a walnut.
2 tablespoons of water.
1 teaspoonful of cornflour mix to a paste with water

Start by whisking the eggs in a saucepan and then add all the other ingredients. Place the pan on a medium heat and keep whisking all the ingredients until the mixture stars to thicken. (7 or 8 mins) turn the stove down to the lowest heat, and simmer for a further minute whisking all the time.

Ladle into warm clean jars and seal. Leave to cool and then label and date.
