Don’t throw away your lemon, orange or grapefruit peels! They are packed with intense citrus flavor perfect for a homemade sweet, crisp and chewy fruit candy. I followed an easy recipe for candied lemon peels on the LunaCafe blog. Her stunning bright yellow lemon photos inspired me to try her recipe. I made a half pint of delicious lemon candy from four of our homegrown lemons. The candied lemon peels taste like a natural lemon gum drop. They are not sour or bitter. The candy will stay fresh for several weeks in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
