Ingredients

  • Peel (no pith) from 2 Meyer Lemons
  • 1/2 a beet, peeled and chopped into matchsticks
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of water

Directions

  • In a pot of cold water, add the peel and bring to a boil. Discard the water and add new cold water and bring it to a boil again. Repeat this two more times (a total of four) to remove any bitterness.
  • Boil the beet matchsticks for 3 minutes to soften them a bit.
  • Boil the sugar and water together to make a simple syrup. Add the peel and let boil until slightly translucent. Add the beet sticks and boil for 2 minutes.
  • Let them cool and dry. Roll in sugar if desired.
