June flew by too fast! Before I know it, the summer will be over and I have to go back to school. I wish time would just slow down.
It’s July 1st and this means, it’s time for Food Fight!
This is summer, so we’re enjoying some citrus. That’s why we have Lemon and Lime battle it out!
Before we go to the battle, I’d like to share something new to go with this theme. I’m sharing something special that will add any citrus dessert that special touch. It will also give your drink a special touch.
I’m sharing Candied Lemon Peels and Lemon Infused Simple Syrup!
I love making these candied peels and I’ve also made them in orange and lime. Many times, they don’t make it onto the dessert because they are to tasty, I just nibble on them all day.
This recipe is awesome because it’s two recipes in one. While making these candied peels, you are also making infused simple syrup. This syrup should definitely be saved and used in tea, iced tea, cocktails and even pancakes. I used it in pancakes this morning and it was delicious!
- 2 lemons
- 1 cup of water
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 tbs of extra fine sugar for coating
- Using a vegetable peeler, peel the skin off the lemon, trying not to get the white part. Slice the peels into thinner strips.
- Add the peels into the small pot and cover it with water. Bring it to boil and boil for about 30 second. Drain the peels and rinse with cold water. Repeat two more times.
- Combine 1 cups of water and 1 cup of sugar in a small pot. Heat up on medium heat and stir until the sugar is melted. Add the peels and bring the water to boil. Lower the heat to medium-low and cook for about an hour.
- Drain off the lemon simple syrup into a container and save it. Toss the peels in fine sugar and lay them out to dry.
