    threeovens's Note:

    This sauce has many uses. One easy and elegant suggestion is to pair it with a soft cheese such as Brie or cream cheese. Just pour over cheese and serve with tortilla or other chips. This recipe uses bottle lemon juice so that it is suitable for canning using the hot water bath method. It stores in a cool place for up to a year. Store in refrigerator once opened. Adapted from "Well-Preserved," by Eugenia Bone.
