My mother in law asked me to make a Cassata Cake for her co-worker's birthday next week. The recipe I am using calls for candied lemon in the filling. Where do I purchase candy lemon peel at? Would my neighborhood grocery store have it or do I need to go to a speciality store for it? Thanks!
Why not just make your own? It's super easy.
I was just coming in here to say it's easy and really really tasty when you make your own!!
Yes, make your own. The commercially available candied peels are nasty.
Try Albert Uster Imports.. they are good :0)
I made my own once to top a cupcake...I think it was a Gale Gand recipe. It wasn't hard, just time consuming. But it's very impressive when you do.
Thanks everyone! I did end up making my own candied lemon peels today. I'm waiting for them to cool and dry so I can dip them into sugar. So far they look like they turned out the way they are suppose. I just haven't tasted one yet to see if they taste the way they are suppose to, will do that soon as they are cooled enough. Thanks again!
