Servings 10


  • 2 small lemons, the small ones have more flavor
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. Fill a bowl with ice and water and set aside. Cut lemons into very thin slices (use a sharp knife); remove and discard seeds.
  • Bring medium saucepan of water to a rolling boil over high heat.
  • Add lemon slices and stir gently until softened (to remove bitterness), 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat, drain water and place lemon slices in ice water. Drain lemon slices and set aside.
  • In a 10″ skillet bring water and sugar to the boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved and mixture is clear.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add lemon slices, arranging slices so they do not overlap. Simmer, uncovered, until lemon slices are translucent, about 1 hour.
  • Transfer to prepared baking sheet; allow slices to cool completely.

  1. Honestly, I'd just be happy with an Amazon gift card, since I literally started blogging only about two months ago.

  2. I shop Amazon weekly. I could buy one of the fabulous cookbooks off of my ever expanding wishlist.

  3. boy! How I wish I had a professional header and logo for my blog!

  4. I would LOVE to win the blog redesign from your talented hubby (and of course those beautiful lemon slices). I'll keep my fingers crossed! I would literally dance in my kitchen if I were to win. I think both yours and Mary's sites are fabulous looking!

  5. Wow, I want them all!! 🙂 I really cannot choose – my blog could use a spruce-up, I'd love to go shopping online for these nail stamps I've been eyeballing and new recipes are always a bonus!

  7. Such a wonderful giveaway, Donna and I'm so excited for you, Chad and Munchkin!! I'm most excited about the Amazon gift card. I could always use some new props for my pictures!

  8. I love the idea of a contest. I would love to win the amazon gift so I can get my kids more books to read. Got to keep them busy this summer.
