This candied lemon peel is soft, sweet and bursting with the bright flavour of fresh Sicilian lemons. The sharpness is mellowed by the sugar syrup, making this peel hard to resist straight from the packet! You’ll really notice the difference from the candied citrus peel you find in the supermarkets.

Slice the lemon peel into pieces and add to homemade lemon or fruit cakes, biscuits or even homemade panettone. For an indulgent treat that also makes a great gift, coat the whole quarters of candied lemon peel in dark chocolate.

The quarters of lemon peel retain a layer of white pith. When stored in a cool place, sugars will crystallise on the surface of the peel, appearing as a white ‘bloom’. This is natural and does not affect the quality or flavour of the product.
