  • 2 tbsp Yacon Syrup
  • 1/8 cup maple sugar
  • 4 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • 1 pinch of salt

  • Combined the lemon juice of one lemon, Yacon syrup, maple sugar, and lemon zest
  • Add beaten egg while whisking the whole time. 
  • Cook over a double boiler while continuously stirring the mixture the whole time. 
  • Cook for a few minutes until it becomes a thin syrup consistency. 
  • Or if you prefer, cook a few minutes more which will create a thicker consistency. 
  • Remove from heat and add in butter and pinch of salt. Stir until butter is melted.
  • Stir until butter is melted.

Use as a syrup over pancakes, waffles or crepes. (By the way, this is the European way of creating Lemon Curd). If not using pour remaining syrup into a sterilized jar with a tight-fitting lid and store in the fridge for up to three weeks.
