Directions

  1. Heat lemon juice, water, sugar, lemon zest, and cornstarch in a pot over medium heat. Simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes; remove from heat.
  2. Sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for at least 5 minutes.
  3. Pour the lemon syrup into the hot, sterilized jars, filling the jars to within 1/4 inch of the top.
  4. Run a knife or a thin spatula around the insides of the jars after they have been filled to remove any air bubbles.
  5. Wipe the rims of the jars with a moist paper towel to remove any food residue. Top with lids, and screw on rings.
  6. Process jars in boiling water in a large pot for 10 minutes; remove jars from pot and allow to cool.
  7. Once cool, press the top of each lid with a finger, ensuring that the seal is tight.

Great flavor amazing! But mine did not get quite thick enough to use as a pancake syrup. I use over yellow and vanilla cake when I poke holes to infuse the flavor then cover with a light whipped frosting! Its a favorite at family get togethers!

Excellent! Great way to get rid of those extra's lemons and it doesn't take that long to do it! I made it with both sugar and splenda and both taste very good. We did find the splenda batch separates in the jar when sitting, but once it was shaken everything blended nicely. It's nice on anything, cakes, ice cream...the list is endless! Thanks for the recipe!

Great! Does what it is supposed to do -- add a sweet, lemony flavor! I used it as a syrup for lemon blueberry pancakes. I like the lemon flavor a little more than blueberry so I went looking for a lemon syrup and found this one. I made a half recipe and did not put it in jars but it would make a great Christmas gift.
