| Today I made a standard batch of Iced Tea with fresh squeezed lemon. However, I did not want to wast the left lemon peals left over. Therefore, I decided on using the excess lemon to make Candied Lemon Peals.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lemon
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Directions:

  1. Cut 1 lemon into halves and then cut each half into 8 pieces.
  2. Remove the extra pulp and seeds on each of the 16 wedges and lightly scrape the inside of the peal with a teaspoon to remove excess inner rind.
  3. Cut each of the 16 wedges into small slivers no wider then a quarter inch.
  4. Heat in a small sauce pan lemon with water until it starts to boil. Boil for 60 second, drain, and repeat one more time.
  5. Add ¾ Cup sugar, 1 Cup water, and lemon peal into the sauce pan and bring to a rolling boil. Turn down heat and simmer for 1 hour. Siring every 15 minutes.
  6. Strain lemon syrup into a jar (good for mixed drinks) and lay lemon slivers on wax paper for 15 minutes.
  7. Pat lemon slivers into loose granular sugar until each piece is covered evenly.
  8. Remove lemon silvers from sugar and let cool further.
