Ingredients

  • 4 lemons, well scrubbed
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup cool water

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Remove zest from lemons with a vegetable peeler, keeping pieces long. Remove white pith using a paring knife. Cut into a fine julienne using a very sharp knife. Place julienned zest in a small bowl; cover with boiling water. Let stand 30 minutes; drain.

  2. Step 2

    Bring sugar and the cool water to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When sugar is completely dissolved, add julienned zest, reduce heat to medium low, and cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand overnight. Store zest in syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
