Lemon Syrup

Lemon Syrup

Ingredients

  • 2 lemons, zest peeled into strips
  • 110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
  • 80ml (1/3 cup) lemon juice (freshly squeezed and organic)

Method

Step 1

Rest the zest in boiling water for 1 minute. Drain and put the zest aside.

Step 2

In a saucepan add the sugar, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons water. Gently cook over a low–medium heat, continuing to stir until the sugar dissolves. Once dissolved let this simmer until thickened (about 2 to 3 minutes). Once thickened add the zest and drizzle across baked goods.
