This recipe uses 3 lemons. Zest the lemons and lime before juicing.

For a clearer sauce use castor sugar.  You may also strain the zest out of the sauce if preferred.

Sauce maybe made while pastry is in fridge to cut down time.

Sauce is also yummy over ice-cream.

Tart maybe served with ice-cream or cream.
