Honey-Candied Lemon Slices

I've candied lemons many, many times...but I've never candied them in honey. I decided to give it a shot for a honey-themed baby shower. Easy!


  • 1 C water
  • 1/2 C organic coconut sugar
  • 4 T honey (I used a local pine honey)
  • 6 organic Meyer lemons, thinly sliced

Place the water, honey, and coconut sugar in a pan and bring to a boil. Cook until the sugar is completely dissolved. Lay the slices in the syrup so that they are all flat and all submerged. Simmer until the rind is softened and translucent in places. Approximately 5-7 minutes. Remove from the syrup with a slotted spoon and set aside.

You'll see these on an appetizer for the Meant to BEE baby shower brunch. Delish.
