Have you ever tried to make candied stuff, like candied apple, candied flower or other candied items? We love to make candied stuff cos it’s easy to make and delicious.
We went to buy some candied lemon in an old candy shop, we think that the candies are brilliant and we wish to make our own easy to make candied lemon.
Having some attempts to make the candy that suite for us, we want to have a candy that is not too sweet, not too burnt and the flavors of the fruit should remain, the sugary taste should not over the fruity flavors.
That’s not hard for us to figure out the formula to make a fruity candied lemon, we just keep using lemon,skin the lemon, boil the syrup, infuse the lemon and wait for it to infuse.
Finally, we found out the best recipe that suit our annoying tummy. We also tried to make candied apples with this recipe. If you would like to use other stuff like orange,pear or others, you can try to use our recipe to make.
Let’s get started,here is the recipe for making the fruity candied lemon.

First of all, skin the lemon on a chopping board and blanch them with hot boiling water,the reason we blanch it first is to release the flavor in the lemon zest or the lemon skin.
Then, the blanched lemon skin have to soak into a ice water bath so the lemon skin will be tender and soft.
After all, we measure the sugar and water in a small pot and bring to simmer. We put our Lemon peels into the pot and cook it with low heat so the syrup can infuse into the lemon.
Furthermore, We let the whole mixture to simmer for about 45 minutes at least, the longer you cook the lemon,the crispier it’ll be.
Be careful!! the syrup is extremely hot, don’t use your finger to test the temperature or even taste that with you tongue, I tried that before, big regret.
After simmering to the texture you like, take the lemon out of the syrup and transfer them on a baking tray with parchment paper , let cool and enjoy the candy.
