Directions

  1. For lemon syrup, in a food processor or blender, combine sugar and lemon peel. Cover and process or blend until lemon peel is finely chopped and sugar starts to turn yellow. Transfer sugar mixture to a small saucepan; add the water. Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Cool for 20 minutes.
  2. Strain lemon syrup through a fine-mesh sieve into a jar; discard lemon peel. Stir lemon juice into lemon syrup. If desired, cover and chill for up to 3 days. Use the concentrate to prepare fresh lemonade as directed below.
