• Sounds like a great treat, Susan! I’d love them as long as they’re not too sweet as I love lemon EVERYTHING!

    • Me too! They aren’t as sweet as you may think Doreen. That’s part of the reason I like them. 🙂

  • I’m not sure I could do the peeling. Still, the process looks like fun. Can I assume it could be done with oranges and limes too?

    • Maybe someone else could do that part for you Glynis. Yes, you can use oranges and limes for this recipe. 🙂

    Would never have thought of this…but lemon candy is one of my favorite things so this may be one I try. I always have lemons in the house!

    • It is so good and I so love the fresh taste Jacquie. Have fun with this recipe and let me know who it turned out. 🙂

  • We have access to a lot of free lemons when we winter in Arizona. I am going to try this.

    • That is great Donna, I would be in heaven if that were the case where I lived. Have fun with this. 🙂

  • Susan these candied lemon peels look great! I use them for drink garnishes too. I don’t do a ton of baking but love getting every ounce of my citrus so these are awesome.

    • Hi Kristy, These really are pretty simple to make so give them a try. you will not be disappointed. 🙂

  • Hi Susan
    It looks great. Ingredients are not hard to find and easily available. So easy to make. In our part of the world with a little change in this recipe a sort of pickle is made with typical a household style. We say it Lemon Achaar.
    Thanks for sharing this mouth-watering recipe.

    • I am aware of Lemon Achaar and I love it when I have an opportunity to get my hands on some. This cnadied lemon peel recipe, although different, is a pretty easy recipe, so give a whirl Muba

  • Sounds delicious Susan, and not THAT hard. Time and patience though. Not oodles of time on those two fronts! Thanks for the recipe.

    • They are A.K. It was great Sunday afternoon project that turned out pretty cool… and delicious. 🙂

    Hi susan; well i am impressed by your ingenuity once again. most would have thrown the lemons away no matter how many they had. and the lemon candy does sound like a good garnish. since they aren’t on the list of things i could make or should eat if i could; i’m wondering if you can describe what they taste like? also i didn’t know you needed to have pans for some dishes that are nonreactive. I also didn’t know what nonreactive meant. so thanks for the new info. take care my friend, max

    • They taste like a sweet lemon but not as sweet as lemon candy Max. Nonreactive pans are often called for in certain dishes. It makes a huge difference in the outcome of the recipe. 🙂

  • Hi Susan – I drink tonic water because it has quinine which relieves my leg cramps. I’ve been putting slices of lemon in it to make it taste better. I’ll bet it would taste fabulous with the candied lemon peel – definitely will try it.

    • Oh that it would Lenie. Have fun with this, and let me know how it turned out when you do. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    We did quite a bit of candied fruit peels and candied fruits when I was in my pastries class years ago. Fresh candied fruit is always so much better than the stuff you can buy at the store.

    • I agree Jon. There truly is not comparison when it come to fresh homemade anything, especially with citrus. 🙂

  • You’re so creative, Susan. These sound so delicious. I’m assuming you can also use store-bought limoncello. Do you think the flavor of the finished lemon peels would be much different than using homemade limoncello?

    • Aw, thanks Jeannette, You certainly can use store-bought limoncello. It will be fun either way. Enjoy. 🙂

  • I am usually not a fan of candied anything Susan, but the lemons peels look good. Assume the lemon cut the sweetness of the sugar.

    • Hi Ken, You assume correctly. The lemon does cut the sweet and enhances the fresh lemon taste. 🙂

  • Loved your video. What a great way to use lemons. Lemons which have anticancer properties. The liminoids compounds help protect your cells from the formation of cancer cells. Lemons are alkaline which are really good for you. Never would have thought of it.

    • Thanks Arleen, The video was an afterthought and a recommendation of a friend that I should ad these on occasion. All your reason are spot on and yet another reason to make and enjoy these. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Sounds and looks delicious. Great move to make a video.

    • It is Catarina. Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed the video. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Nice video my friend. So glad you found a way to make video work for you. Oh yeah, and the recipe looks great too! LOL

    • Thanks Cheryl, It was n’t that hard and it fun to make. The recipe is pretty easy, especially if you like lemons.

  • You know I’m not the biggest lemon fan, but this is a great idea 🙂 I also like the way you’ve put the pictures associated with the recipe into a short YouTube video.

    • Yep, but it’s still a fun recipe nonetheless Jeri. 😀 It was an idea that cheryl had floated by me and it did seem to work pretty well. It’s a good use of all the images I do take. 🙂

  • Jason Butler

    Those look pretty good. I like lemons so I would give this a shot.

    • They are Jason, Give a whirl. It’s really pretty easy. 🙂
