  1. Place all ingredients except the lemon juice in a medium saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 30 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in lemon juice and let cool completely.
  4. Store covered, in the fridge, for up to one month or longer in the freezer.


I used an immersion blender once cooled to get it really smooth, but this step is not necessary. We just like things smooth!
