Use this recipe to garnish any citrus dessert, such as our Lemon Pound Cakes.
In a medium saucepan, combine sugar and 1 cup water; bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add lemon slices, and simmer very gently over medium-low heat, swirling pan occasionally, until slices are opaque throughout, 20 to 30 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer slices to a sheet of waxed paper; set aside. Add juice to pan, stir, and set aside.
