  • Wash the lemons, dry them and carefully remove the peel by carving the lemons in 4 places, just as you would an orange.
  • Cut the rinds into very thin strips.
  • Place them in a bowl with a generous amount of cold water and soak for 24 hours, changing the water every 3-4 hours.
  • When ready, transfer to a pot with a generous amount of water.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 3-4 minutes.
  • Drain and repeat the same process another three times.
  • When ready, transfer lemon rinds to another pot and add the sugar, water, vanilla and star anise. Boil for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer the contents of the pot to a boil, cover with parchment paper and refrigerate overnight.
  • The following day, transfer the mixture to a pot.
  • Add the glucose syrup and lemon juice.
  • Boil over medium heat for about 30-40 minutes until the syrup thickens, and removing the froth if necessary.
  • When ready, transfer the lemon spoon sweet to sterilized jars.
  • Store in a cool, dry place.
