Recipe: Myers Rum Sauce
- 1/2 lb butter (not margarine)
- 1 lb. Sugar
- 3 oz Myers Rum
- 5 tempered eggs

- Myers Rum is a very dark Jamaican Rum. It has a full-bodied flavor and smell. Use the original dark. It is readily available in most super markets and liquor stores. If it should happen you can’t find it look for an English Rum such as Prussers.
- To temper eggs: Place eggs, in their shells, in hot tap water (approximately 120 degrees) for 2 minutes. Remove the eggs from water and crack them in a separate mixing bowl. Whisk the eggs.
