If you like the idea of using some candied strips of lemon peel, this is a recipe idea that you can make on your own. You can serve candied lemon peel to dip into melted chocolate, or finely chop it into a cake recipe or dessert recipe. Candied lemon peel also looks lovely when you use it to decorate cake recipe such as this Lemon Angle food cake recipe. To make candied citrus, you can use everything from lemon, grapefruits and oranges. You will also need sugar. With a sharp knife, slice off the ends of the citrus, making sure to follow the curve of the fruit, cutting away the outermost peel, while leaving most of the white pith on the fruit. Slice the citrus peel lengthwise into 1/4-inch-wide strips. Then in a medium-sized pot of boiling water, cook the citrus peel until tender, which should take about 10 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer the citrus peel to a wire rack that is set over a rimmed baking sheet; spreading in a single layer to dry slightly, about 15 minutes. Then in a medium saucepan, bring one cup of sugar and one cup water to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add the citrus peel and boil until it turns translucent and the syrup thickens. With a slotted spoon, transfer the citrus peel to a wire rack, separating the pieces as needed. Let the candied peel dry one hour, and toss with some sugar to coat.
Lemon curd is a popular condiment that is often used for afternoon tea and is used similarly to jam or custard. Lemon curd is a sweet, tangy topping that has a strong lemon taste. Lemon curd's texture is both smooth and silky, similar to a very smooth, creamy custard, and thick enough to be spread onto scones and other foods. In Britain, lemon curd is also known as lemon cheese. Traditionally, lemon curd recipes are made with the zest and the juice of Meyer lemons.
