Step 1

Using a mandoline, slice lemons into paper-thin rounds, remove seeds and discard.

Step 2

In a medium bowl combine lemon slices and sugar. Let mixture sit until sugar is dissolved (30 minutes).

Step 3

In a saucepan bring lemon sugar mixture and 2 cups of water to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until translucent (30 minutes), being careful not to let mixture caramelize.

Step 4

Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Strain mixture, reserving lemon slices. Place lemon slices on parchment paper; let dry at room temperature (lemons will be sticky). Cover and freeze for up to one week.
