Method

  • 01

Add egg yolks and whisk over a saucepan of gently simmering water until pale and frothy and thick enough to hold a ribbon when drizzled from the whisk. Remove from heat, gradually whisk in butter and season to taste.

Note For clarified butter, melt 250gm cold cubed butter over low heat for 10 minutes, pour into a jug, stand, skim surface, then pour off clear butter and reserve, discarding milk fat.
