    Couldn't be easier, very good. I did think the amount of sugar and water was overkill (wasteful and unnecessary), so I reduced that by half. It worked great. Will definitely have many uses for this, including, as I did, garnishing a cheesecake.

      Perhaps the amount of simple syrup helps keep the zest separated while boiling. Remember, you are dealing with a very high temp which can be dangerous. Keep the fully cooked syrup in a glass jar in the refrigerator and then use in a million ways
