How to Make Lemon Paste: 8 steps
1596 views, 1 comments



Lemon paste can be useful for cooking purposes throughout the year, long past the time the lemons have finished fruiting. This recipe comes from the 1600s, so has been updated somewhat to reflect the realities of blenders and electric ovens!
Instructions

Things you'll need:

  • Cutting board and knife
  • Saucepan
  • Stirring implement (wooden spoon)
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking tray (sheet) lined with baking paper (parchment)
  • Blender or mortar and pestle (or a food processor)
  • Oven, or sun-drying racks
  • 1/2 dozen thick skinned lemons
  • 2 pounds sugar
1
Cut the lemons through the middle.

2
Put them into a saucepan of boiling water and boil them until tender.

3
Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

4
Blend them to form a paste. Strain any excess liquid or pulp (see "Tips" below for using a mortar and pestle at this step.)

5
Add the sugar to the paste.

6
Roll it out onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.

7
Place in the oven on a very low heat for several hours until dried. Turn frequently. If you choose to sun dry, this will take several days and should also be turned frequently. Keep sun-drying lemon paste protected from insects.

8
Put it into an air-tight storage container. It will keep for up to one year.

Tips and Warnings:

  • If you are using a mortar and pestle instead of a blender, be sure to strain any juice or pulp remaining.
