This was always going to be interesting :-) I was given a wonderful lemon butter recipe when I first tasted, and fell in love with, lemon butter at a friend's place a few years ago.
So... I thought I would put my wonderful hubby to the test. Remember, he is the cook of the house.. I follow recipes. He has been able to take a mouthful from my plate of a meal that I love... and in that mouthful of food he can break it down into it's separate components and is able to recreate that recipe for me at home! It was a chicken/bacon/chilli/tortalini/tomatoey thing. He was able to distinguish that it had cinnamon in it!! Argh! I just knew I liked it :-)
ANYWAY..... I made 3 batches of Lemon Butter. 1 x Thermomix recipe. 1 x Tonia's Recipe (quite zingy) and 1 x thermomix with some lemon zest in it.
I used the same batch of freshly picked lemons, same batch of butter, eggs from the same carton etc.
How did I find the taste of each of the different butters? I liked a slightly zingier lemon butter, but the Thermomix one has a smoother texture. I suspect that all I need to do was add some more lemon juice to the Thermomix recipe.
Which one was easiest to make?? The Thermomix recipe! no question! A very simple and easy recipe.
When John came home.. I had 3 pieces of bread each with a lemon butter spread from a different batch. John, thankfully, took the test seriously and tasted each one carefully.
The winner? He chose the Thermomix recipe! Saying it was smoother on the palate and a better mix of the ingredients.
Go go thermomix LOL
