  3. Process for a few seconds to combine ingredients.
  4. While blender motor is running, remove lid to slowly add hot butter.
  5. Serve immediately or keep warm for up to 30 minutes by placing sauce in a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid or mason jar with lid. Set in a small bowl of hot water to keep warm.

    • Add in some lemon zest at the end for extra lemony flavor.
