Directions:
In a medium heavy bottomed saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the top and whisk to dissolve. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, whisking often. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter, then the lemon juice.
In a small bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Gradually add about 1/2 c. of the hot lemon juice mixture to the yolks. Stir the yolk mixture into the saucepan. Stirring constantly, bring to a simmer over medium heat.
Strain into a ceramic fondue pot or chafing dish (straining will remove any stray bits of coagulated egg white). Stir in the zest. Serve immediately, with the dipping ingredients of your choice.
Dippers: strawberries, shortbread cookies
