In an effort to use everything back in the old days, my paternal Grandmother used to make lemon sugar for desserts and teas.  My Mother adopted this and we always had it growing up. 

Very simple yet rewarding!

All you need is one lemon and it goes a long way.  Peel the lemon to just get the rind.  If you get the white, it will turn horribly bitter.  At this point put the rind in the chopper or, I like to mince it myself.  I use approximately 1/4 - 1/3 cup sugar to one lemon.  Really it is up to you.  I also add a 1/2 teaspoon of the lemon juice to help mix.  At first it will be really crumbly. After a few hours it will become more mushy.  Store the mixture in a small air tight container and refridgerate.  This will last for at least 7-10 days.

Some of my favorite uses are; iced/hot tea, pancakes, cookies, toast with butter, frosting, muffins, cocktails Cheesy .....


I forgot to take an after shot!  But in the lower left hand corner is the sugar with the lemon rind.  (not mixed yet!  Roll Eyes)

I'm going to try this. I think it would be really good in tea.

I'll try a few of the other things you listed too.
