Yield: 1 small jar (200g) 1x
1x 2x 3x Ingredients
2 tbsp lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar
2 cups water
2 cups extra water to boil lemons zest
Grate 3 lemons into a small bowl.
Squeeze one of them to have 2 tablespoon lemon juice. Put the other two aside. We are not using them.
Chop one lemon or slice it thinly into strips or rings.
Put the zest and chopped lemon pieces in a pot.
Pour 1 cup water over them. Bring it to boil over medium high heat and let it simmer for 10 minutes.
Strain and repeat this step one more time. The bitterness of lemon zest will be removed this way.
Add sugar, lemon juice and 2 cups water over strained lemon zest in pot.
Bring it to boil over medium low heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. It will be runny at this step but gets thicker as it cools down.
Keep it in a jar.
These ingredients make about 200 g jam, so double or triple the ingredients if you want a larger amount.
