{ Candied Meyer Lemons }

Today is Dan’s birthday!  He’s 26 on this coldest of Sundays and we will be spending an evening out celebrating his birth.  I for one am very glad that he was born.

As part of the lead-up to his birthday I candied lemons to use as a topping for a lemon meringue pie, which we enjoyed last night (and that was also kind of a disaster).  Candying these was one of the easier things I’ve done lately.  I just simmered the lemons in a simple syrup and let them go.  It took approximately the length of the movie 2012 to candy 3 meyer lemons.  And they are beyond delicious.  I am also now a conspiracy theorist.  END OF DAYS!

Bring 2 cups of sugar and 2 cups water to a gentle boil in your widest pan.  Slice 3 meyer lemons paper thin.  Allow them to simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until lemons become translucent.  If the lemons start getting too dark, switch out the simple syrup.
