Candied Lemon Peel

Comments Off on Candied Lemon Peel

Time: 20 minutes active preparation, but best to let these dry out overnight before serving.

Inspired by: I love everything lemon. Candied rinds brings back some fun childhood memories.


  • 3-5 lemons
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups sugar


  • Cut lemons into quarters. Remove fruit and white part of the rind. Cut the quarters into thin long strips.
  • Bring water and lemon rinds to a boil in a small pan for about 5 minutes and then drain (to remove any bitterness in the rind).
  • Bring water and sugar to a boil, add the rind, and simmer until the white pith is translucent – approximately 10 minutes.
  • Remove peels and let them cool. Toss in a bit of sugar and allow them to harden over night. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
