Candied Meyer Lemons
This recipe makes more than enough for the Meyer Lemon Crepe Cake. Spoon the leftover candied citrus over yogurt or ice cream.
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 Meyer lemons (do not peel), preferably organic, washed well and sliced 1/4 inch thick
Bring sugar and water to a boil in a large saucepan, and heat until sugar dissolves. Add lemons, and cover surface with parchment. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer gently until rinds are translucent, about 30 minutes. Let lemons cool in syrup.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer lemons to a wire rack set over a rimmed baking sheet. Let stand to allow excess syrup to drip off.
