Healthycooking's picture
  Water 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Sugar substitute/2 tablespoons granulated fructose 2 Teaspoon
  Cornstarch 2 Tablespoon
  Fresh lemon juice 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Grated lemon zest 1 Tablespoon, or thinly sliced and snipped
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon

Pour water into a small saucepan.
If using a sugar substitute, set aside and add after sauce is cooked.
If using fructose, add to saucepan.
In a cup, mix cornstarch with just enough water to make a smooth paste with no lumps.
Gradually stir into saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.
When sauce thickens and comes to a boil, stir and boil for 1 minute or until it looks clear.
Remove from heat.
If you are using sugar substitute, mix into saucepan with lemon juice, zest, and butter.
Taste for sweetness and, if necessary, stir in more sugar substitute or fructose.
