Candied Lemon Zest
0 3/4 cup  cold water
0 1/2 cup  sugar
  1. Remove zest from lemon with a vegetable peeler. Cut into thin julienne strips with a chef's knife (alternatively, use a citrus zester). Place in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine 3/4 cup water and sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Reduce heat to low and add the lemon zest. Simmer gently until the zest is tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
