What is Candied Lemon Peel?
Candied lemon peel is a confection used to decorate and add flavor to desserts. The peel can be be found with cakes, donuts, and more. The confection is made by boiling lemon peels in water and then boiling them in sugar water until they become soft and almost translucent. The peels are then dipped in sugar and left to dry. The result is a sweet and mildly sour thin strip of yellow, sugar-coated peel.
